My Own Private Idaho is a 1991 American independent adventure drama film written and directed by Gus Van Sant, loosely based on Shakespeare's Henry IV, Part 1, Henry IV, Part 2, and Henry V. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_1

The story follows two friends, Mikey Waters and Scott Favor, played by River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves respectively, as they embark on a journey of personal discovery that takes them from Portland, Oregon to Mike's hometown in Idaho, and then to Rome in search of Mike's mother. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_2

Van Sant wrote the screenplay in the 1970s, but discarded it after reading John Rechy's 1963 novel City of Night and concluding that Rechy's treatment of the subject of street hustlers was better than his own. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_3

Over the years, Van Sant rewrote the script, which comprised two stories: that of Mike and the search for his mother, and Scott's story as an update of the Henry IV plays. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_4

Van Sant had difficulty getting Hollywood financing, and at one point considered making the film on a minuscule budget with a cast of actual street kids. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_5

After he sent his script to Reeves, and Reeves showed it to Phoenix, both agreed to star in the film on each other's behalf. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_6

My Own Private Idaho had its premiere at the 48th Venice International Film Festival, and received largely positive reviews from critics, including Roger Ebert and those of The New York Times and Entertainment Weekly. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_7

The film was a moderate financial success, grossing over $6.4 million in North America, above its estimated budget of $2.5 million. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_8

Phoenix received several awards for his performance in the film, including the Volpi Cup for Best Actor at the 1991 Venice Film Festival, Best Male Lead from the Independent Spirit Awards, and Best Actor from the National Society of Film Critics. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_9

My Own Private Idaho is considered a landmark film in New Queer Cinema, an early 1990s movement in queer-themed independent filmmaking. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_10

Since its release, it has grown in popularity and been deemed as a cult classic, especially among LGBT audiences. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_11

The film is notable for its then-taboo subject matter and avant-garde style. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_12

Plot My Own Private Idaho_section_0

Mike, a street hustler, stands alone on a deserted stretch of highway. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_13

He starts talking to himself and notices that the road looks "like someone’s face, like a fucked-up face." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_14

He then experiences a narcoleptic episode and dreams of his mother comforting him as home movies of his childhood play in his mind. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_15

Later, after being fellated by a client in Seattle, Mike returns to his favorite spots to pick up more clients. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_16

He is picked up by a wealthy older woman who takes him to her mansion, where he finds two fellow hustlers she also hired. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_17

One of them is Scott Favor, Mike's best friend, and the other is Gary. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_18

While preparing to have sex with the woman, Mike has another narcoleptic episode and awakens the next day with Scott in Portland, Oregon. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_19

Mike and Scott are soon reunited with Bob Pigeon, a middle-aged mentor to a gang of street kids and hustlers who live in an abandoned apartment building. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_20

Scott, the son of the mayor of Portland, tells Bob in private that when he turns 21, he will inherit his father's fortune and retire from street hustling. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_21

Meanwhile, Mike yearns to find his mother, so he and Scott leave for Idaho to visit Mike's older brother, Richard. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_22

Along this journey Mike confesses that he is in love with Scott, who gently reminds him he only sleeps with men for money. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_23

Richard tries to tell Mike who his real father is, but Mike says that he knows it is Richard. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_24

Richard tells Mike that their mother works as a hotel maid; when Mike and Scott visit the hotel, they are told she went to Italy in search of her own family. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_25

At the hotel, they meet Hans, the man who drove them to Portland, and prostitute themselves to him. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_26

With the money they received from Hans, Mike and Scott travel to Italy. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_27

They find the country farmhouse where Mike's mother worked as a maid and an English tutor. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_28

Carmela, a young woman who lives there, tells Mike that his mother returned to the United States months ago. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_29

Carmela and Scott fall in love and return to the U.S., leaving Mike to return there on his own, broken-hearted. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_30

Scott's father dies, and Scott inherits his fortune. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_31

Back in Portland, Bob and his gang confront a reformed Scott at a fashionable restaurant, but he rejects them. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_32

That night Bob has a fatal heart attack. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_33

The next day the hustlers hold a rowdy funeral for Bob, while in the same cemetery, a few yards away, Scott attends a solemn funeral for his father. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_34

At the end of the film, Mike is back on the deserted stretch of the Idaho highway. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_35

After he falls into another narcoleptic stupor, two strangers pull up in a truck, take his backpack and shoes, and drive away. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_36

Moments later, an unidentified figure pulls up in a car, picks the unconscious Mike up, places him in the vehicle and drives away. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_37

Cast My Own Private Idaho_section_1

Development My Own Private Idaho_section_2

My Own Private Idaho originated from John Rechy's 1963 novel City of Night, which featured street hustlers who did not admit to being gay. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_38

Van Sant's original screenplay was written in the 1970s, when he was living in Hollywood. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_39

After reading Rechy's book, Van Sant felt it was considerably better than what he was writing, and shelved the script for years. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_40

In 1988, while editing Mala Noche, Van Sant met a street kid, Michael Parker, who inspired the character of Mike in My Own Private Idaho. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_41

Parker also had a friend named Scott, a street kid like himself. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_42

In the script, Van Sant made the Scott character a rich kid, also fashioned after street hustlers Van Sant had met in Portland. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_43

Early drafts of the screenplay were set on Hollywood Boulevard, not Portland, with working titles such as Blue Funk and Minions of the Moon. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_44

Rechy's novel caused Van Sant to change the setting to Portland. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_45

The script originally consisted of two separate scenarios: the first was called Modern Days and recounted Mike's story; a second updated the Henry IV plays with Scott's story. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_46

Van Sant realized that he could blend the two stories together in the manner of William S. Burroughs's "cut up" technique. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_47

In essence, this method involves various story fragments and ideas mixed and matched together to form a unique story. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_48

The idea to combine the two scenarios formed in Van Sant's mind after he saw Orson Welles's Chimes at Midnight. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_49

He has said, "I thought that the Henry IV plays were really a street story. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_50

I also knew this fat guy named Bob, who had always reminded me of Falstaff and who was crazy about hustler boys". My Own Private Idaho_sentence_51

Van Sant realized that Prince Hal in the plays resembled Scott and the sidekick was Mike. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_52

His script ended up as a restructuring of the Henry IV plays. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_53

Van Sant got the idea for Mike's narcolepsy from a man who was a guide of sorts when the director was gathering material for the film and who always looked like he was about to fall asleep. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_54

The film's title is derived from the song "Private Idaho" by the B-52's that Van Sant heard while visiting the state in the early 1980s. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_55

Van Sant showed the script to a 20th Century Fox executive who liked Shakespeare. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_56

Eventually, he toned down the Shakespeare and made the language more modern. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_57

Van Sant was also working on a short story called "My Own Private Idaho" that he intended to film. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_58

It was 25 pages long and about two Latino characters on the streets of Portland who go in search of their parents and travel to a town in Spain. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_59

One falls in love with a girl and leaves the other behind. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_60

Van Sant had another script, The Boys of Storytown, with the Mike and Scott characters. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_61

The characters of Hans and Bob were also present. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_62

Van Sant wanted to make the film but felt the script was unfinished. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_63

While editing Drugstore Cowboy, he combined the scripts for Modern Days and Storytown with the "Idaho" short story. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_64

Initially, no studio would finance the film because of its controversial and offbeat subject matter. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_65

After Drugstore Cowboy received favorable critical raves and awards, studios started to show some interest, but they all wanted to revise it. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_66

This frustration prompted Van Sant to attempt the feature on a shoestring budget with a cast of actual street kids, including Michael Parker, and actor Rodney Harvey, who was going to play Scott. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_67

Van Sant faced the problem of casting the two central roles. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_68

He decided to send the script to the agents of Keanu Reeves and River Phoenix, figuring that their agents would reject the script. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_69

Reeves's agent was amenable to the project, but Phoenix's agent would not even show him the screenplay. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_70

Not to be deterred, Van Sant got the idea for Reeves to personally deliver the film's treatment to Phoenix at his home in Florida. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_71

Reeves did so over the Christmas holidays, riding his 1974 Norton Commando motorcycle from his family home in Canada to the Phoenix family ranch in Micanopy, Florida, outside Gainesville. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_72

Reeves was no stranger to River Phoenix or his family, having worked previously with River on Lawrence Kasdan's I Love You to Death and with his brother Joaquin Phoenix and girlfriend Martha Plimpton on Ron Howard's Parenthood. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_73

After reading the treatment, Phoenix agreed to play Scott, but since Van Sant had already cast Reeves in the role, they had to convince River to take the edgier role of the drug-addicted hustler Mike. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_74

Van Sant promised not to make either actor do anything embarrassing. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_75

He got an offer of $2 million from an outside investor but when he put off production for nine months so that Phoenix could make Dogfight, the investor and his money disappeared. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_76

Producer Laurie Parker shopped the script around and, at the time, New Line Cinema was in the process of branching out into producing arthouse films and decided to back Van Sant's vision with a $2.5 million budget. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_77

In a 2012 interview, Kiefer Sutherland said that he declined Van Sant's offer to star in the lead role because he wanted to go skiing, a decision he has said he regrets. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_78

Principal photography My Own Private Idaho_section_3

Principal photography took place from November to December 1990, primarily in Portland, Seattle and Rome. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_79

Scenes of the Idaho road depicted in the film were shot near Maupin, Oregon, on Oregon Route 216. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_80

Phoenix arrived in Portland two weeks before principal photography was to begin to do research and Van Sant remembered, "He seemed to be changing into this character". My Own Private Idaho_sentence_81

One of the film's directors of photography, Eric Alan Edwards, recalled that the actor "looked like a street kid", and "in a very raw way he wore that role. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_82

I've never seen anybody so intent on living his role". My Own Private Idaho_sentence_83

Several cast and crew members, including Michael Parker, Phoenix, Reeves and Flea lived together in a house in Portland during filming. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_84

A couple of times a week they would play music together. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_85

Due to the low budget, a typical day of shooting started at 6 am and ended at 11 pm. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_86

The film was not storyboarded and was made without a shot list. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_87

The campfire scene was originally a short, three-page scene that Phoenix rewrote into an eight-page scene where Mike professes his love for Scott so that it was more apparent that his character was gay whereas Van Sant had originally made it more ambiguous. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_88

Phoenix described his process as his "own stream-of-consciousness, and this just happened to be one that was more than actor notes. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_89

Then Keanu and I refined it, worked on it . My Own Private Idaho_sentence_90

. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_91

. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_92

but it was all done quickly. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_93

It was something I wrote down a night, two nights, before, and then I showed it to Keanu and Gus. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_94

. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_95

. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_96

. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_97

And Gus kept the whole thing. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_98

He didn't pare it down. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_99

It's a long scene." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_100

Phoenix has said that neither he nor Reeves felt uncomfortable with Idaho's queerness. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_101

When asked if he was worried playing a gay prostitute may hurt his public image Reeves said, "Hurt my image? My Own Private Idaho_sentence_102

Who am I—a politician? My Own Private Idaho_sentence_103

[laughs softly] No. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_104

I’m an actor. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_105

That wasn’t a problem." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_106

Eric Edwards shot the time-lapse photography shots on his own. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_107

They were not in the script and the film's producer was worried that he was using up too much film. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_108

Van Sant originally had the screen go black when Mike passed out but was not satisfied with this approach. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_109

He used Edwards's footage to present "an altered sense of time" from Mike's perspective. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_110

Some New Line executives disliked the Shakespeare scenes and wanted Van Sant to cut them, but foreign distributors wanted as much Shakespeare in the film as possible. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_111

Music My Own Private Idaho_section_4

The film's score was composed by pedal steel guitarist Bill Stafford. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_112

He recorded various arrangements for the film, including instrumental adaptations of "Home on the Range" and "America the Beautiful". My Own Private Idaho_sentence_113

Stafford won the Independent Spirit Award for Best Film Music in 1992 for his score. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_114

Other original and selected songs from various artists were also featured in the film, including: My Own Private Idaho_sentence_115

The soundtrack was not released on any media. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_116

Reception and release My Own Private Idaho_section_5

Release My Own Private Idaho_section_6

My Own Private Idaho premiered at the 48th Venice International Film Festival on September 4, 1991. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_117

It also received screenings at the 17th Deauville Film Festival, 16th Toronto International Film Festival and the 29th New York Film Festival. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_118

The film was released in limited theaters in the United States on September 29, 1991. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_119

It grossed $6.4 million in North America, above its estimated budget of $2.5 million. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_120

Critical response My Own Private Idaho_section_7

Van Sant's film achieved critical acclaim. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_121

Film critic Roger Ebert wrote, "The achievement of this film is that it wants to evoke that state of drifting need, and it does. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_122

There is no mechanical plot that has to grind to a Hollywood conclusion, and no contrived test for the heroes to pass." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_123

In his review for Rolling Stone magazine, Peter Travers wrote, "Van Sant's cleareyed, unsentimental approach to a plot that pivots on betrayal and death is reflected in magnetic performances from Reeves and Phoenix." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_124

Vincent Canby, in his New York Times review, wrote, "The performances, especially by the two young stars, are as surprising as they are sure. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_125

Mr. Phoenix (Dogfight) and Mr. Reeves (of the two Bill and Ted comedies) are very fine in what may be the two best roles they'll find in years. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_126

Roles of this density, for young actors, do not come by that often". My Own Private Idaho_sentence_127

In his review for Newsweek, David Ansen praised Phoenix's performance: "The campfire scene in which Mike awkwardly declares his unrequited love for Scott is a marvel of delicacy. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_128

In this, and every scene, Phoenix immerses himself so deeply inside his character you almost forget you've seen him before: it's a stunningly sensitive performance, poignant and comic at once." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_129

Entertainment Weekly gave the film an "A−" rating and Owen Gleiberman wrote, "When Van Sant shows us speeded-up images of clouds rolling past wheat fields, the familiar device transcends cliche, because it's tied to the way that Mike, in his benumbed isolation, experiences his own life—as a running piece of surrealism. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_130

The sheer, expressive beauty of those images haunted me for days." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_131

J. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_132 Hoberman, in his review for The Village Voice, wrote, "While Phoenix vanishes with reckless triumph into his role, Reeves stands, or occasionally struts, uneasily beside his, unable to project even the self-mocking wit of Matt Dillon's star turn in Drugstore Cowboy." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_133

Hal Hinson of The Washington Post wrote, "Gus Van Sant's sensibility is wholly original, wholly fresh. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_134

My Own Private Idaho adds a new ingredient: a kind of boho sweetness. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_135

I loved it." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_136

Conversely, USA Today gave My Own Private Idaho two and half stars out of four, calling it "nothing but set pieces; tossed into a mix whose meaning is almost certainly private". My Own Private Idaho_sentence_137

Time magazine's Richard Schickel wrote, "What plot it has is borrowed, improbably, from Henry IV, and whenever anyone manages to speak an entire paragraph, it is usually a Shakespearean paraphrase. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_138

But this is a desperate imposition on an essentially inert film." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_139

In his review for The New Yorker, Terrence Rafferty wrote, "Van Sant has stranded the actor in a movie full of flat characters and bad ideas, but Phoenix walks through the picture, down the road after road after road, as if he were surrounded by glorious phantoms." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_140

On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 79% based on 58 reviews, with an average rating of 7.7/10. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_141

The site's critical consensus reads: "A tantalizing glimpse of a talented director and his stars all at the top of their respective games, Gus Van Sant's loose reworking of Henry IV is smart, sad and audacious." My Own Private Idaho_sentence_142

On Metacritic, the film holds a weighted average score of 77 out of 100, based on 18 critics, indicating "generally favorable reviews". My Own Private Idaho_sentence_143

Home media My Own Private Idaho_section_8

The film was originally released on VHS and LaserDisc in 1992. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_144

In 2005, the film was remastered by The Criterion Collection and released on a two-disc DVD set. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_145

The second disc features new interviews, outtakes and more information about the movie. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_146

This DVD set is accompanied by an illustrated 64-page-booklet featuring previously published articles and interviews with cast and crew and new essays by JT LeRoy and Amy Taubin, a 1991 article by Lance Loud and reprinted interviews with Van Sant, River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_147

Entertainment Weekly gave the DVD a "B+" rating and wrote, "While you may enjoy watching My Own Private Idaho, whether you choose to view this two-disc Criterion edition in its entirety depends on how much you enjoy watching people talking about My Own Private Idaho", and concluded, "But with all the various interpretations and influences, this is definitely a film worth talking about". My Own Private Idaho_sentence_148

In 2015 The Criterion Collection released the film in Blu-ray, based on a restored 4K digital transfer. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_149

Accolades My Own Private Idaho_section_9

My Own Private Idaho received the Showtime International Critics Award at the 1991 Toronto Film Festival. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_150

River Phoenix received the Volpi Cup for Best Actor at the 1991 Venice Film Festival. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_151

The actor said, in regards to winning, "I don't want more awards. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_152

Venice is the most progressive festival. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_153

Anything else would be a token". My Own Private Idaho_sentence_154

Phoenix then went on to receive Best Male Lead from the Independent Spirit Awards and Best Actor from the National Society of Film Critics. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_155

With 6 nominations at the 7th Independent Spirit Awards, it tied with Hangin' with the Homeboys for the most nominations during that ceremony. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_156

Winning 3, it tied with Rambling Rose for the most awards. My Own Private Idaho_sentence_157
