'Don't Worry, He Won't Get Far On Foot'
Is this real-life story of John Callahan – an Oregon-based cartoonist who was left paralyzed from the waist down by a car accident – the movie that will get Gus Van Sant his mojo back? The three films he's made since Milk back in 2008 have left us a little, shall we say, underwhelmed. But the man is a top-notch director of actors, and there's something about the story plus the fact that he's reuniting with his To Die For star Joaquin Phoenix that gives us hope. Jonah Hill, Jack Black, Rooney Mara and a smattering of musicians (Carrie Brownstein, Beth Ditto, Kim Gordon) lend their talents as well.
