Vincent Gallo’s “The Brown Bunny”: A Road Movie Stuck in the Wrong Gear

“No one can say that Vincent Gallo isn’t an auteur. One of the very first titles in the credit sequence of his new film, ‘The Brown Bunny,’ proudly proclaims that it was written, directed, edited, and produced by him. And of course he’s also its star and virtually the sole focus of the camera’s relentlessly loving gaze throughout. And lest any viewer still not get it, the final credits reveal that Gallo was also the film’s director of photography, production designer, and camera operator. Is there any thing that this man cannot do? Well, for starters, he seems here, at least, to be unable to make a film that anyone in his or her right mind would actually pay to see. ”
