Saw this today; really into it. I even watched Elephant again tonight. Now I need to see Gerry! Michael Pitt is brilliant in this film; he captures Kurt Cobain's spirit but builds a set of idiosyncrasies that are uniquely queer. Van Sant stages it all in stately wide shots, showcasing Blake's large house or a vast landscape. It's impressive, and requires patience, but rewards those willing to indulge a little.
