|The most notorious film in recent memory because Chloe Sevigny, an actress most people have heard of, gives director/star Vincent Gallo (Buffalo 66) a lengthy real-life blow job. The Cannes film festival was shocked by THE BROWN BUNNY, but less for the sex than for the self-indulgent run-time. After everyone was done laughing Gallo cut about half an hour of real-time "guy driving to nowhere" footage out of the film and at 92 minute it is much improved. (92 minutes is a good length for a film. I would guess that's almost exactly the average of all feature films ever released.) Features Cheryl Tiegs as a disconsolate silent beauty at rest stop. Her inlusion is fitting because everything about this movies feels like the 1970s… you keep waiting for Peter Fonda to show up.|
