Surreal road trip! - My Own Private Idaho review by TB

Spoiler Alert
17/09/2018

A very odd and surreal road trip for two gay hustlers, with two totally different backgrounds and aims in life. . This film is like a Shakespearean play on acid and it wasn’t really for me but the one thing that was superb, was the heartbreaking and mesmerising performance by the late River Phoenix.
