Gus Van Sant movies: All 17 films, ranked worst to best, including ‘Milk,’ ‘Good Will Hunting,’ ‘Drugstore Cowboy’
Gus Van Sant celebrates his 67th birthday on July 24, 2019. A fiercely individual voice with one foot in the independent world and another in the studio system, Van Sant’s filmography varies wildly from mainstream entertainments to peculiar experiments, from sublime highs to extreme lows. In honor of his birthday, let’s take a look at all 17 of his films, ranked worst to best.

Born in 1952 in Louisville, Kentucky, Van Sant kicked off his filmmaking career with the micro-budget, black-and-white “Mala Noche” (1985), a major preamble to the New Queer Cinema. His next feature, “Drugstore Cowboy” (1989), firmly established him as an indie maverick, a reputation he would fulfill with his followup, the River Phoenix/Keanu Reeves road movie “My Own Private Idaho” (1991). He dipped his toes into studio filmmaking with the gleefully dark satire “To Die For” (1995), which won Nicole Kidman a Golden Globe as Best Comedy/Musical Actress.
