Viggo Mortensen can swing a broadsword as Aragorn or neatly fillet a Russian mobster. But off-screen, the Oscar contender is a life-giving force, playing big brother to a band of poets, painters, and searchers like him.
Extensive interview and article about Viggo's films, art, music, life. Great quotes from Dennis Hopper, Diane Lane, art dealer Robert Mann, and several others Viggo has worked with. Photographs (including cover) by Bruce Weber, plus several from his childhood.
Tom Roston spent two days driving from Montana to Idaho with Viggo Mortensen and his son Henry.

"You know, there are freakish and unexpected events that make up our lives. You have to be open to suffering a little."
