My Own Private Idaho

A uniquely distinctive portrayal of male street-hustling in the American northwest, with River Phoenix as a narcoleptic sex-for-hiree and Keanu Reeves as the son of Portland's mayor, slumming in the trade. Dreamily photographed with mood ranging from hilarious to tragic to highly erotic. 'Idaho' is a modern classic.
