tbh I have watched every movie in River Phoenix’s filmography and I can say with confidence that the best film he was ever in was “Dogfight”. That film is just stunning from beginning to end.
"River was totally different," Van Sant continues. "He has this kind of Mozart quality of just burying himself completely in research. He does it through a sort of osmosis; everything you give him feeds into this plant that’s growing out of the information he’s got. He tape-records things, and talks to people; he has his own sources. It’s more tactile: River will create something out of mixed media – film, writing, records, people talking, this whole wild thing. With Keanu, you give him a book, he’ll read the book. River might read part of the book, and if he’s interested he’ll read the whole book. Keanu will read what you give him like you were giving him instructions: he follows them."
"We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all."
