Berkreviews.com Movie Club episode 075 – My Own Private Idaho (1991)
The month of June features movies that qualify as LBGTQ+ and Jonathan (@berkreviews) picked My Own Private Idaho (1991). Corey (@coreyrstarr) has seen this Gus Van Sant film before that stars River Phoenix, Keanu Reeves, and James Russo, but Jonathan had not. There are some interesting aspects of this film including a scene where models on magazine covers come to life and start conversing about prostitution. There are some definite rough spots in the film, but overall both Jonathan and Corey enjoyed it.
Next weeks episode: A Single Man (2009)
Corey picked A Single Man (2009) for next weeks episode of movie club. The film is directed by Tom Ford and starring Colin Firth, Julianne Moore, and Matthew Goode. Colin Firth was nominated for the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role at the Oscars that year. Unfortunately, this film isn’t easy to get as it doesn’t appear to be available on any streaming platforms.
Berk Reviews Movie Club – General Info
Corey and Jonathan both realized they had a ton of movies they’d never seen. In an effort to work through their gap list, they started this podcast to ensure they at least check one new film off the list almost every week. Thus, for a film to qualify for Movie Club one or both have to have never seen it or at least not seen it for a long time.
