Neither of the following films are ‘horror.’ They capture an indifferent world, neither good or evil. It just exists and it’s what we do in it that matters. One is about the physical struggle of humans in an environment they’re not used to, another is about the struggles of teenagers trying to fit into the world they don’t understand. Both are by Gus Van Sant. A filmmaker who happily flits from major Hollywood projects to small, almost experimental ones regularly and who seems to make no distinction between them.
