Gus Van Sant: Icons

"I think I've always adopted different visions and made a collage out of them," Gus Van Sant is quoted in Gus Van Sant: Icons, released this week from Actes Sud. "Because I'll see something and be influenced by it really quickly, as opposed to not being influenced by anything and having my own direct strong vision. I think I have a soup of different influences all the time. And it just keeps changing… I think I eventually arrived at this feeling that the language of cinema had been hijacked by an industry that needed to use it for its own ends, not necessarily for experimentation, but for its own industrial ends."
