this movie is not for everyone
27 July 2005 | by mertalpaySee all my reviews

Gus Van Sant is a good director but , this movie has very less conversation than his other less conversation movies , so after sometime you only watch the nature, like documentary.so if you come to a cinema to see something to happen in this movie you can see it after 2 hours and its kind of boring.i think Gus Van Sant had some lessons from Gerry and made elephant perfect.this cant be the movie that i ve give ten out of 10 , because it only tells how we deeply go into how psychologically desperate. this is a documentary film about how people behaves against nature.not to fight against it, try to live with it friendly.that s what i got from this movie.
