I can put on my clothes slower than you can.

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.
