Watch Gus Van Sant’s Rarely Seen, Harris Savides-Shot ‘Four Boys in a Volvo’

Written by on July 16, 2018 


If nothing else, Gus Van Sant’s latest feature, Don’t Worry, He Won’t Get Far on Foot, has engendered the most energetic discussion and retrospective viewing of his work in a noticeable length of time — since Paranoid Park, it seems? (We weren’t too keen on the film when seeing it at Sundance, but Lord knows it’s considered a step above some others.) Case in point: Le CiNeMa Club have the Academy Film Archive’s restoration of Four Boys in a Volvo, his 1996 piece “made from material shot for a Levi’s commercial on which [he] was given complete freedom.” Brief in length, intimate in focus, vast in its landscapes, and positively aglow from what is perhaps his first collaboration with Harris Savides — thus preceding Gerry by six years — it distills a remarkable amount of Van Sant’s predilections and appeal into four lucid, dream-like minutes.

Four Boys in a Volvo can be streamed, for free, here until Thursday, July 19.
