a withering autocritique by a childlike man who always seems to be compensating for his vulnerability, whether through destructive behaviours, phallic lenses or comically masculine pursuits like motorcycle racing. for all the accusations of narcissism, it's honestly one of the most delicate, unguarded films there is, all hurt and regret with no professional sheen to detach or deflect. you'd have to be a fat pig with the physique of a slave trader to bear ill feeling toward it.

We get nothing but movies by pieces of shit but we don’t get movies by pieces of shit with vision anymore. When was the last time a movie as controversial as this?? Now it’s just grown men crying that some people don’t like their cape shit. Beautiful movie. If we are being honest the head game wasn’t that strong

I have a theory Gallo made this film so he could show everyone he had a big dick andd get sucked off by Chloe Sevigny at the same time. Fair play to him, but this is complete garbage.

Not as bad as I've heard but it left me feeling empty afterwards. It's visually pleasing and the road trip is great. The last 25 minutes did nothing for me and what could've been a great, peaceful film was ruined whenever Daisy was introduced.

Everything before blowjob scene were over extented, stabile camera shooting without a glue of any kind of film making. The act itself was edited with better sense of scene, and after that was the most interesting point of the story: why he was driving that far. Extra points for fantasy theme as well. The most hilarious thing was that without that culmination point there was no story at all.

Oh Jesus. I'm probably in the minority here, because I actually liked the road trip a lot. It was slow, uneventful, and at times quite beautiful in its own way, just like a real road trip. Gallo composes some attractive shots, and the scene at the salt flats in particular really sticks out. But then we went go the fucking rabbit hole with a painfully awkward 20 minute sequence of crack, blowjobs, and rape, and the movie left me with an awful taste in my mouth (hurhur). Too much.

Having only watched the infamous blowjob scene, I can only attest to the fact that Chloe Sevigny wasted what seemed like so much promise in Kids and to a lesser extent, Trees Lounge.

The clearest moments of deliberation are exemplified by silence. The trek across the country to Los Angeles is punctuated by moments of nostalgia and wistful introspection. The highlight is when Bud Clay picks up a prostitute in Las Vegas, after initially turning her down then circling around the block, then buys her lunch. The tension between the two is intense in this unusual circumstance, but it characterizes the film beautifully.

I got the feeling that Gallo is just another guy making a film, if that makes any sense. He might've made it thinking it was some deeply felt personal artful indie film but it just isn't particularly good. It seems like he included the infamous blowjob scene just to chock or some attempt at some kind of weirdly felt stark realism and erotic love between the two lovers.

I was thinking that it is possible to have The Brown Bunny Challenge a la Ice Bucket Challenge for Insomnia. You take a video of yourself falling asleep watching the movie, then nominate three people and so on. But , there is that Sixth Sense with a blowjob scene, so I don't know what to say.

Some see this movie for only one reason, and they may be right in doing so despite being in for a long wait. The hardcore porn is way over near the end, and until then, "The Brown Bunny" is a somewhat narcissistic and incredibly anemic and stretchy road movie. After Chloë Sevigny's scorching performance, you finally get a sense of what Gallo was trying to do, and it is touching. But the bulk of the script is lazy, which sort of blows (no pun intended) a potentially harder-hitting conclusion.

Our Daily Free Stream: (...) Es braucht keiner Worte, um zu sehen, dass Buds Herz gebrochen ist. In Kalifornien trifft er endlich sie, Daisy (Chloe Sevigny), in einem Hotelzimmer. Vermutlich wissen die meisten bereits, was passieren wird, denn das ist die Szene, für die The Brown Bunny berühmt wurde. Ja, die Szene ist explizit. Nein, sie ist nicht grundlos. Wir verstehen Bud, seine Einstellung zu Frauen, seine Sexualität, seine Schuld (...)

(VIewed on 19/05/12): Notorious for its real time oral sex scene, The Brown Bunny is a small and intimate 'personal' film that is best appreciated as a moody meditation on grief and consequence. Gallo directs with complete sensitivity, documenting the solitary cross country journey of its protagonist with a gritty simplicity that borders on poetic realism. He handles multiple duties admirably, and it's an uncompromising trip that predates contemporary 'indie' trends and is surprisingly moving.

Yeah, it's a haunting portrait blah blah. Bull. The movie's an excuse for Vincent Gallo to get sucked off on camera. Pass.

This kicked my ass. If I saw it when I was in my early twenties and was more into “slow cinema” or whatever this probably would’ve been up there for my favourite film. “I need at least seven days with Chloe Sevigny. Since I saw Brown Bunny, it ain't never been the same”

It wasn't judged fairly. The scene was obviously consensual and acted. There is something geniune here that's hard to explain. The ending was true.

Vincent Gallo's "The Brown Bunny" (2003) is infamous for its slow pacing and minimalism. Known for a controversial scene and harsh critiques at Cannes, it's a polarizing film that blends road movie aesthetics with deep personal exploration. While some praise its rawness, others dismiss it as tedious. I'm on the tedious side of that fence.

Back in the 1950s and early '60s, people would sit through long, boring movies in order to see a flash of tits. This long, boring movie features a blowjob, but with internet porn, why bother?

Obvious flaws, and the hardcore blowjob takes away from the film. Whatever you think about Gallo you can not say he doesn't put his all into things.

For the second time now Gallo has surprised me (in a good way). His films are personal, highly emotional and minimalistic, and they seem to come together in the very last scenes.

Halve the run time and you have the makings of a good film. At 90 minutes long, however, it drags until the final 10 minutes actually deliver some drama, dialogue, and narrative. Indulgent.

You know a film is ultimately just pointless self-indulgence when the writer/director/actor throws in a scene where he can get a real blowjob from his girlfriend.
