Brown Bunny

Posted by on September 22 at 12:56 PM

I recently rented The Brown Bunny, the art house flick by reviled/revered troublemaker Vincent Gallo (the movie is finally out on DVD). My verdict: I love it. Sure it’s completely pretentious and focuses on the nearly cross-eyed director (his enormous cock gets plenty of screen time too). But the story, which pulls heavily from the cult classic Two Lane Blacktop, is bittersweet and beautifully filmed. It’s the story of one man’s solitary road trip and the missed connections he makes and breaks along the way. Plus how can you give up a chance to see the demure ChloĆ« Sevigny on screen?
