Gus Van Sant’s latest ode is again to the cool kids you didn’t really know. It’s been accepted to Cannes – where his Elephant won Best Director + top prize in 2003. Nice in France, maybe, but as a box office indicator – no.

The kids slouch, they smirk, they’re clueless, they get in trouble, the camera follows them around like a puppy. Folks who have seen it, probably publicists both professional and amateur, love it. No reason to doubt them at this point – Gus is usually ahead of the curve.

Sorry this trailer is crappy quality. Gus – send a better link to Portland Public Art!
