I LOVED Drugstore Cowboy, but I'm perplexed by the mystique surrounding Private Idaho, To Die For, Good Will Hunting and now Mala Noche. I did like Mala better than the others. Will I watch more Van Sant? Probably. Milk was very good and Elephant and Paranoid Park sound good, but I'm prepared for disappointment. Not sure why I keep coming back. Mala Noche kudos: Tim Streeter, B&W cinematography, the soundtrack.
