One of the most controversial films of the year, Vincent Gallos The Brown Bunny was vilified in some quarters when it had its premiere at the Festival de Cannes. (Incidentally, the film was screened before Gallo had finished editing.) In large part, this response seems to spring from misguided expectations. Far from being a conventional American indie, The Brown Bunny pushes the limits of the medium, demanding much more of its audience than the dominant, Hollywood-lite approach often taken by indie films. The film follows hero Bud Clay as he packs into his van after a motorcycle race and drives off towards his home in California. Periodically, Bud attempts to communicate with the people he meets en route a snaggle-toothed young girl in a gas station; a middle-aged woman in a rest stop; his girlfriend Daisys senile parents. All these encounters are decidedly strange and marked by a peculiar sense of desperate intimacy. The Brown Bunny turns American road movie conventions on their heads. (Steve Gravestock)
