Gus Van Sant United States, 2005

El Biffo's rating of the film Last Days

Gus Van Sant said that this was informed by Chantal Akerman's Jeanne Dielman, but it lacks the formal rigor that made JD so compelling, and we never feel connected or involved. Jeanne's meatloaf looks a lot tastier than Blake's Kraft Macaroni & Cheese Dinner. Not much meat here for Asia Argento fans, either.
