Gus Van Sant made Good Will Hunting and Finding Forrester. Those were good movies, maybe great. So how can Gus explain
his dramatic retelling of Psycho? This movie spoils his talent, the talent of his phenomonal cast, and the classic source
material. My biggest pet peeve is that much of the film is overrun with characters going through life routines. Anne Heche
changes her clothes, drives, takes a shower, eats, and bores me just as she would in real life. That's tolerable, but she
manages to do all these things for extended periods of time, thus putting a cartoonish question mark above my head. Some of
the acting is just plain corny. Maybe that's the point, but I didn't think it was supposed to be.
