Gus Green Van Sant Jr. (born July 24, 1952) is an American film director, screenwriter, painter, photographer, musician, and author who has earned acclaim as both an independent and mainstream filmmaker. Gus Van Sant_sentence_0

His films typically deal with themes of marginalized subcultures, in particular homosexuality; as a result, Van Sant is considered one of the most prominent auteurs of the New Queer Cinema movement. Gus Van Sant_sentence_1

Van Sant's early career was devoted to directing television commercials in the Pacific Northwest. Gus Van Sant_sentence_2

He made his feature-length cinematic directorial debut with Mala Noche (1985). Gus Van Sant_sentence_3

His second feature, Drugstore Cowboy (1989), was highly acclaimed, and earned him screenwriting awards from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and New York Film Critics Circle and the award for Best Director from the National Society of Film Critics. Gus Van Sant_sentence_4

His next film, My Own Private Idaho (1991), was similarly praised, as was the black comedy To Die For (1995), the drama Good Will Hunting (1997), and the biographical film Milk (2008); for the latter two, Van Sant was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director and both films received Best Picture nominations. Gus Van Sant_sentence_5

In 2003, Van Sant's film about the Columbine High School massacre, Elephant, won the Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Gus Van Sant_sentence_6

Van Sant also received the festival's Best Director Award that same year, making him one of only two filmmakers—the other being Joel Coen—to win both accolades at the festival in the same year. Gus Van Sant_sentence_7

Though most of Van Sant's other films received favourable reviews, such as Finding Forrester (2000) and Paranoid Park (2007), some of his efforts, such as the art house production Last Days (2005) and the environmental drama Promised Land (2012), have received more mixed reviews from critics, while his adaptation of Tom Robbins's Even Cowgirls Get the Blues (1993), his 1998 remake of Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho, and The Sea of Trees (2015), were critical and commercial failures. Gus Van Sant_sentence_8

In addition to directing, Van Sant has written the screenplays for several of his earlier works, and is the author of a novel, Pink. Gus Van Sant_sentence_9

A book of his photography, 108 Portraits, has also been published, and he has released two musical albums. Gus Van Sant_sentence_10

He is openly gay and lives in Los Feliz, California. Gus Van Sant_sentence_11

Early life Gus Van Sant_section_0

Van Sant was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky, the son of Betty (née Seay) and Gus Green Van Sant Sr; Gus's father was a clothing manufacturer and traveling salesman, who rapidly worked his way into middle class prosperity, holding executive marketing positions that included being president of the White Stag Manufacturing Company's Apparel Operation. Gus Van Sant_sentence_12

As a result of his father's job, the family moved continually during Van Sant's childhood. Gus Van Sant_sentence_13

His paternal family is of partial Dutch origin; the name "Van Sant" is derived from the Dutch name "Van Zandt". Gus Van Sant_sentence_14

The earliest Van Zandt arrived in the New Netherland area in the early 17th century, around what is now New York City. Gus Van Sant_sentence_15

Van Sant is an alumnus of Darien High School in Darien, Connecticut, and The Catlin Gabel School in Portland, Oregon. Gus Van Sant_sentence_16

One constant in the director's early years was his interest in visual arts (namely, painting and Super-8 filmmaking); while still in school he began making semi-autobiographical shorts costing between 30 and 50 dollars. Gus Van Sant_sentence_17

Van Sant's artistic leanings took him to the Rhode Island School of Design in 1970, where his introduction to various avant-garde directors inspired him to change his major from painting to cinema. Gus Van Sant_sentence_18

Career Gus Van Sant_section_1

1982–1989: Early career Gus Van Sant_section_2

After spending time in Europe, Van Sant went to Los Angeles in 1976. Gus Van Sant_sentence_19

He secured a job as a production assistant to filmmaker Ken Shapiro, with whom he developed a few ideas, none of which came to fruition. Gus Van Sant_sentence_20

In 1981, Van Sant made Alice in Hollywood, a film about a naïve young actress who goes to Hollywood and abandons her ideals. Gus Van Sant_sentence_21

It was never released. Gus Van Sant_sentence_22

During this period, Van Sant began to spend time observing the denizens of the more down-and-out sections of Hollywood Boulevard. Gus Van Sant_sentence_23

He became fascinated by the existence of this marginalized section of L.A.'s population, especially in context with the more ordinary, prosperous world that surrounded them. Gus Van Sant_sentence_24

Van Sant would repeatedly focus his work on those existing on society's fringes, making his feature film directorial debut Mala Noche. Gus Van Sant_sentence_25

It was made two years after Van Sant went to New York to work in an advertising agency. Gus Van Sant_sentence_26

He saved $20,000 during his tenure there, enabling him to finance the majority of his tale of doomed love between a gay liquor store clerk and a Mexican immigrant. Gus Van Sant_sentence_27

The film, which was taken from Portland street writer Walt Curtis' semi-autobiographical novella, featured some of the director's hallmarks, notably an unfulfilled romanticism, a dry sense of the absurd, and the refusal to treat homosexuality as something deserving of judgment. Gus Van Sant_sentence_28

Unlike many gay filmmakers, Van Sant—who had long been openly gay—declined to use same-sex relationships as fodder for overtly political statements, although such relationships would frequently appear in his films. Gus Van Sant_sentence_29

Shot in black-and-white, the film earned Van Sant almost overnight acclaim on the festival circuit, with the Los Angeles Times naming it the year's best independent film. Gus Van Sant_sentence_30

The film's success attracted Hollywood interest, and Van Sant was briefly courted by Universal; the courtship ended after Van Sant pitched a series of project ideas (including what would later become Drugstore Cowboy and My Own Private Idaho) that the studio declined to take interest in. Gus Van Sant_sentence_31

Van Sant moved back to Portland, Oregon, where he set up house and began giving life to the ideas rejected by Universal. Gus Van Sant_sentence_32

He directed Drugstore Cowboy about four drug addicts robbing pharmacies to support their habit. Gus Van Sant_sentence_33

The film met with great critical success and revived the career of Matt Dillon. Gus Van Sant_sentence_34

1990–1995: Indie and arthouse success Gus Van Sant_section_3

Drugstore Cowboy's exploration of the lives of those living on society's outer fringes, as well as its Portland setting, were mirrored in Van Sant's next effort, the similarly acclaimed My Own Private Idaho (1991). Gus Van Sant_sentence_35

Only with the success of Cowboy was Van Sant now given license to make Idaho (a film he had originally pitched that was knocked back several times because the studios deemed the script 'too risky'. Gus Van Sant_sentence_36

New Line Cinema now gave Van Sant the green light, and he went on a mission to get the Idaho script into the hands of River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves his preferred choice for the two young leads. Gus Van Sant_sentence_37

After months of struggle with agents and managers over the content of the script, Van Sant finally secured Phoenix and Reeves, who played the roles of Mike Waters and Scott Favor, respectively. Gus Van Sant_sentence_38

Centering around the dealings of two male hustlers (played by Phoenix and Reeves), the film was a compelling examination of unrequited love, alienation, and the concept of family (a concept Van Sant repeatedly explores in his films). Gus Van Sant_sentence_39

The film won him an Independent Spirit Award for his screenplay (he had won the same award for his Drugstore Cowboy screenplay), as well as greater prestige. Gus Van Sant_sentence_40

The film also gained River Phoenix best actor honors at the Venice Film Festival among others. Gus Van Sant_sentence_41

In addition, it helped Reeves—previously best known for his work in the Bill and Ted movies—to get the critical respect that had previously eluded him. Gus Van Sant_sentence_42

Van Sant's next film, a 1993 adaptation of Tom Robbins' Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, was an excessive flop, both commercially and critically. Gus Van Sant_sentence_43

Featuring an unusually large budget (for Van Sant, at least) of $8.5 million and a large, eclectic cast including Uma Thurman, John Hurt, Keanu Reeves and a newcomer in the form of River Phoenix's younger sister Rain (at Phoenix's suggestion), the film was worked and then reworked, but the finished product nonetheless resulted in something approaching a significant disaster. Gus Van Sant_sentence_44

Van Sant's 1995 film To Die For helped to restore his luster. Gus Van Sant_sentence_45

An adaptation of Joyce Maynard's novel, the black comedy starred Nicole Kidman as a murderously ambitious weather girl; it also stars Matt Dillon as her hapless husband and, the third Phoenix sibling in as many projects, Joaquin Phoenix, as her equally hapless lover (River had died from a drug overdose a year and half earlier). Gus Van Sant_sentence_46

It was Van Sant's first effort for a major studio (Columbia), and its success paved the way for further projects of the director's choosing. Gus Van Sant_sentence_47

The same year, he served as executive producer for Larry Clark's Kids; it was a fitting assignment, due to both the film's subject matter and the fact that Clark's photographs of junkies had served as reference points for Van Sant's Drugstore Cowboy. Gus Van Sant_sentence_48

1997–2003: Mainstream breakout Gus Van Sant_section_4

In 1997, Van Sant gained mainstream recognition and critical acclaim thanks to Good Will Hunting, which starred and was written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck. Gus Van Sant_sentence_49

The film—about a troubled, blue-collar mathematical genius—was a huge critical and commercial success. Gus Van Sant_sentence_50

It was nominated for nine Academy Awards, including Best Director for Van Sant. Gus Van Sant_sentence_51

It also won two, including Best Screenplay for Damon and Affleck, and Best Supporting Actor Oscar for Robin Williams, who, in his acceptance speech, referred to Van Sant as "being so subtle you're almost subliminal." Gus Van Sant_sentence_52

Van Sant, Damon and Affleck parodied themselves and the film's success in Kevin Smith's Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. Gus Van Sant_sentence_53

The success of Good Will Hunting afforded Van Sant the opportunity to remake the Alfred Hitchcock classic Psycho. Gus Van Sant_sentence_54

As opposed to reinterpreting the 1960 film, Van Sant opted to recreate the film shot-for-shot, in color, with a cast of young Hollywood A-listers. Gus Van Sant_sentence_55

His decision was met with equal parts curiosity, skepticism, and derision from industry insiders and outsiders alike, and the finished result met with a similar reception. Gus Van Sant_sentence_56

It starred Anne Heche, Vince Vaughn and Julianne Moore, and met with a negative critical reception and did poorly at the box office. Gus Van Sant_sentence_57

In 2000, Van Sant directed Finding Forrester, about a high-school student (Rob Brown) from the Bronx unlikely becoming a friend of a crusty, reclusive author (Sean Connery). Gus Van Sant_sentence_58

Critical response was generally positive. Gus Van Sant_sentence_59

In addition to directing, he devoted considerable energy to releasing two albums and publishing a novel, Pink, which was a thinly veiled exploration of his grief over River Phoenix's death. Gus Van Sant_sentence_60

2003–present: Return to arthouse cinema Gus Van Sant_section_5

Van Sant traveled to the deserts of Argentina, Utah, and Death Valley for the production of 2002's Gerry, a loosely devised, largely improvised feature in which stars Matt Damon and Casey Affleck—both playing characters named Gerry—wander through the desert, discussing Wheel of Fortune, video games, and nothing in particular. Gus Van Sant_sentence_61

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Gus Van Sant_sentence_62

It took Gerry over a year to make it to theaters, in which time Van Sant began production on his next film, Elephant. Gus Van Sant_sentence_63

Approached by HBO and producer Diane Keaton to craft a fictional film based on the 1999 Columbine High School massacre, the director chose to shoot in his hometown of Portland, employing dozens of untrained, teen actors. Gus Van Sant_sentence_64

As well as melding improvisational long takes like those in Gerry with Harris Savides' fluid camerawork, the film was also influenced by Alan Clarke's 1989 film of the same name (see Elephant). Gus Van Sant_sentence_65

The finished film provoked strong reactions from audiences at the 2003 Cannes Film Festival. Gus Van Sant_sentence_66

At the Cannes festival, the jury awarded Elephant with their top prize, the Palme d'Or, and Van Sant with his first Best Director statue from the festival. Gus Van Sant_sentence_67

The success of Elephant led Van Sant to show the U.S. premiere of Elephant as a fundraiser for Outside In, an organization working to help youth living on the streets of Portland, Oregon. Gus Van Sant_sentence_68

In 2005, Van Sant released Last Days, the final component of what he refers to as his "Death Trilogy", (the other parts being Gerry and Elephant). Gus Van Sant_sentence_69

It is a fictionalized account of what happened to Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain in the days leading up to his death. Gus Van Sant_sentence_70

In 2006, Van Sant began work on Paranoid Park based on the book by Blake Nelson, about a skateboarding teenager who accidentally causes someone's death. Gus Van Sant_sentence_71

The film was released in Europe in February 2008. Gus Van Sant_sentence_72

He also directed the "Le Marais" segment of the omnibus film Paris, je t'aime. Gus Van Sant_sentence_73

Released in 2008, Van Sant's Milk is a biopic of openly gay San Francisco politician Harvey Milk, who was assassinated in 1978. Gus Van Sant_sentence_74

The film received eight Oscar nominations at the 81st Academy Awards, including Best Picture, winning two for Best Actor in a Leading Role for Sean Penn, who starred as Milk, and Best Original Screenplay for writer Dustin Lance Black. Gus Van Sant_sentence_75

Van Sant was nominated for Best Director. Gus Van Sant_sentence_76

Van Sant later stated that his experience with Sean Penn on the film was "amazing". Gus Van Sant_sentence_77

His 2011 project Restless was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival, and starred Mia Wasikowska and Henry Hopper, the son of actor Dennis Hopper. Gus Van Sant_sentence_78

Van Sant's film, Promised Land, was released on December 28, 2012. Gus Van Sant_sentence_79

The film stars Frances McDormand, Matt Damon, and John Krasinski—the latter two co-wrote the screenplay based on a story by Dave Eggers. Gus Van Sant_sentence_80

Filmed in April 2012, the production company, Focus Features, selected the release date so that the film is eligible to qualify for awards consideration. Gus Van Sant_sentence_81

Following Promised Land, Van Sant directed a film titled Sea of Trees, which starred Matthew McConaughey and Ken Watanabe. Gus Van Sant_sentence_82

The film tells the story of a man who travels to the infamous suicide forest in Japan to kill himself, only to encounter another man wishing to kill himself as well, with whom he then embarks on a "spiritual journey". Gus Van Sant_sentence_83

The film was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival but was met with harsh critical reception at the Cannes, being booed and laughed at. Gus Van Sant_sentence_84

In December 2016, it was announced Van Sant would direct Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far on Foot, a biopic about cartoonist John Callahan, starring Joaquin Phoenix, Rooney Mara, Jonah Hill, Jack Black and Mark Webber. Gus Van Sant_sentence_85

Principal photography began in March 2017. Gus Van Sant_sentence_86

Other work Gus Van Sant_section_6

Van Sant released two musical albums: Gus Van Sant and 18 Songs About Golf. Gus Van Sant_sentence_87

The Broken Social Scene song, "Art House Director", is supposedly about himself, a connection discussed by a Singaporean fan on the internet. Gus Van Sant_sentence_88

Van Sant played himself in episodes of the HBO series Entourage and the IFC series Portlandia. Gus Van Sant_sentence_89

Van Sant directed the pilot for the Starz television program Boss, starring Kelsey Grammer. Gus Van Sant_sentence_90

Van Sant went onto The Bret Easton Ellis Podcast to discuss filmmaking, writing, film history and their collaborations that never got made (The Golden Suicides) and the one that did (The Canyons). Gus Van Sant_sentence_91

Archive Gus Van Sant_section_7

The moving image collection of Gus Van Sant is held at the Academy Film Archive. Gus Van Sant_sentence_92

The archive has preserved many of Van Sant's short films, including The Happy Organ, Ken Death Gets Out of Jail, Five Ways to Kill Yourself, and others. Gus Van Sant_sentence_93
