Introspective artist Blake is buckling under the weight of fame, professional obligations and a mounting feeling of isolation. Dwarfed by towering trees, Blake slowly makes his way through dense woods. He scrambles down an embankment to a fresh spring and undresses for a short swim. The next morning he returns to his house, an elegant, if neglected, stone mansion. Many people are looking for Blake--his friends, his managers and record label, even a private detective--but he does not want to be found. In the haze of his final hours, Blake will spend most his time by himself. He avoids the people who are living in his house, who approach him only when they want something, be it money or help with a song. He hides from one concerned friend and turns away another. He visits politely with a stranger from the Yellow Pages sales department, and he ducks into an underground rock club.

Thadeus A. Thomas was a real Yellow Pages salesman who wandered onto the set one day and tried to sell the cast and crew Yellow Page ad space. Gus Van Sant was so intrigued by him he asked him to appear in the film. See more »

The slowest, most boring, piece of film ever waisted!
This "movie" (and I use that term loosely) is the slowest, most boring waist of time I've ever spent in my entire life. I literally wanted to pull my hair out by the roots just to give me something to do.
This "movie" is filled full of long slow shots of people doing mundane everyday things with little to no dialog to accompany it. If I wanted to watch wind blow through shrubbery for what seemed like ten minutes I'd step outside on a windy day. Seinfeld was known as the show about nothing but this movie could easily steal that phrase. It may have an overall point but how much torture do I have to sit through to get to it.
If you like watching grass grow you may like this "movie". Otherwise save the electricity and watch yourself in the mirror doing everyday things for two hours. You'll get the same result.
1 of 10 - It's up there with the Wicker Man remake as a movie that's just unacceptable.
