This film is not for the passive observer. It requires patience and presence. I hear you if you don't have it; but I loved this film. I sat for minutes afterwards, stunned.
We don't often get a parable that speaks so vehemently to our time. When the machinations, the technology, the hatreds, the unfairness, and even the landscapes get ripped away; we have only our unmapped paths stretching before us to trudge, clueless. Bravo, Van Sant. Bravo, Damon and Affleck. An unforgettable and unforgiving piece of work.
