Boring, funny, annoying, self-indulgent, loony, beautiful and pretentious.

You certainly don't want to spend 90 minutes watching Vincent Gallo drive, shower, brood, and weep, which is almost all this movie is.

Vincent Gallo is probably a much more interesting fellow than Bud Clay, the inarticulate motorcycle racer he portrays in The Brown Bunny.

It's hard to imagine how anyone could appreciate this movie, with its inane, repetitious, and pause-filled dialogue; non-existent plot; and stillborn character definition.

May 22, 2003
A film of ... crude technique and thundering banality.
August 30, 2004
... too drawn out.
August 26, 2004
An existential, experimental film that works if approached from that viewpoint, and sadly from no other.

A giant act of cinematic self-gratification.

If this is a 'feature film,' then so are your old home movies, or videotapes from a convenience store's security camera. ... It's not just one scene; the whole movie blows.

It's not really a movie. I suppose it's what could be called a recorded behavior.
June 3, 2008
When every other scene looks like a cola, jeans or motorcycle commercial -- perfectly unposed with hair proudly mussed -- Gallo's motivations seem too compromised.

Who Knew Chloe Sevigny Gave Such Good Head?

September 15, 2005
A humorless self-indulgent and self-loathing mess that is saddled with an uninteresting story and arty pretensions.

September 1, 2004
[Gallo's] treatment here of his star, and his audience, is his rudest insult yet.
September 1, 2004
Gallo's storytelling is, to be charitable, uneven.

The kind of fascinatingly bad film only a really gifted and fearless moviemaker could make.

Luckily, Sevigny has a promising future before her, and this bizarre little diversion will soon scamper into the wild grass, never to be seen again.
September 10, 2004
Less a story of undying love and passion than a singularly focused lovefest. And it's a self-lovefest, really, no matter who the flower girl is.

A road movie, but made by someone who seems so self-absorbed he might as well be asleep at the wheel.
