Are any of you familiar with any of the films from the innovative writer/director, Gus Van Sant? Keanu Reeves’ film repertoire does include one of these intriguing films. This film is entitled, “My Own Private Idaho”.

Brief synopsis: “Two best friends living on the streets of Portland as hustlers embark on a journey of self discovery and find their relationship stumbling along the way.” from Imdb.com

This film was quite deep, yet entertaining; and it includes some rather provocative scenes throughout because after all, they were portraying hustlers. It is definitely not meant for very young audiences. Keanu Reeves portrayed the character, “Scott Favor” (sometimes called, “Scotty Favor”) alongside his best friend, the late great and phenomenal actor, “River Phoenix”; who portrayed the character, “Mike Waters”, who suffers from narcolepsy and is often looked after by the “Scott Favor” character.

I must admit that Keanu Reeves looked quite attractively entrancing throughout this film’s entirety. It seemed that he could not do any wrong in any pose or position, and no matter where he was and what he was doing, he was very attractive. I considered him the epitome of male beauty or as male beauty personified, whilst viewing this film.

One of my favorite scenes in the film is when Keanu’s character “Scott Favor” and River’s character “Mike Waters” humorously feign that they are engaging in sexual intercourse. It appears that the “Scott Favor” character would stop at nothing to embarrass his father, the Mayor, “Jack Favor” (portrayed by Tom Troupe) in “My Own Private Idaho”. And I won’t even go into detail about the extraordinarily talented Udo Kier’s comical and also extremely provocative portrayal of the character, “Hans” in this film. You will just have to see for yourself.
