Essential Gus Van Sant: LAST DAYS on 35mm

Last Days

Michael Pitt portrays a hauntingly familiar figure in this meditation—dedicated to Kurt Cobain—on the final days in the life of a famed musician retreating from the clamor of the world and its myriad, insistent demands. “Success is subjective,” an earnest Yellow Pages salesman tells Blake (Pitt), as he invites him to consider how a directory listing may best serve his “business needs.” Blake, however, doesn’t need more calls and prefers to wander the grounds of his secluded estate, build himself a campfire and ironically sing “Home on the Range” to no one in particular. (97 mins.)

LAST DAYS screens Thursday, May 28 at 7pm in our Whitsell Auditorium (located in the Portland Art Museum).  The program is being presented as part of our Essential Gus Van Sant (& His Influences) series.

Tickets are available online or at the door.
