Angry Gallo Attacks Critic

3 June 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Sharp-tongued Vincent Gallo has launched a scathing attack on "fat pig" movie critic Roger Ebert - after the reviewer claimed the indie filmmaker apologized for making his widely slammed flick The Brown Bunny. The movie caused uproar at last month's Cannes Film Festival with its graphic oral sex scene between Gallo and actress Chloe Sevigny. But fuming Gallo vehemently denies he has apologized for making the film. He says, "I never apologized for anything in my life. I like the movie. I had 100 per cent creative and financial control of it and if I didn't like it, I would have changed it. The only thing I'm sorry about is putting a curse on Roger Ebert's colon. If a fat pig like Roger Ebert doesn't like my movie, then I'm sorry for him." Ebert wrote in American newspaper Chicago Sun-Times that Gallo had expressed regret for making Brown Bunny to a reporter from US movie magazine Screen International. »

Sevigny Defends Gallo

26 May 2003 | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The Brown Bunny star Chloe Sevigny has come out in defense of ridiculed co-star Vincent Gallo. Sevigny, who performs fellatio on the maverick filmmaker in an incredible ten minute scene in the film, says she had absolute faith in Gallo and does not regret being part of the panned project. Last week Gallo faced a barrage of criticism and scorn after a screening of the film and has vowed never to make another movie again. He also apologized to all those who had invested time and money in it. But Sevigny insists it was Gallo who convinced her to agree to such a demanding role. She says, "I was always committed to the project on the strength of Vincent alone. I have faith in his aesthetic, so I knew it wouldn't be gratuitous or anything." »

Cannes Competition toasts French films

24 April 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

The festival's official poster may be in Italian this year, but it is France that gets pride of place in the official lineup for the 56th Festival de Cannes, with French films capturing one-quarter of the Competition titles that were unveiled here Wednesday. With the U.S. studios not proffering many movies for selection, Hollywood is represented In Competition by three pictures: Clint Eastwood's Mystic River, a Warner Bros. Pictures/Village Roadshow drama starring Sean Penn, Laurence Fishburne, Tim Robbins and Kevin Bacon; Vincent Gallo's The Brown Bunny, starring Gallo and Chloe Sevigny; and Gus Van Sant's Elephant, shot with an amateur cast for HBO Films. Festival president Gilles Jacob refuted any suggestion that U.S. filmmakers had boycotted Cannes as a reprisal for France's antiwar stance on Iraq. "Absolutely not," he said. "It's been a difficult year," Cannes artistic director Thierry Fremaux admitted. As a result, the lineup contains little to set the pulse racing, featuring as it does many directors who have appeared In Competition before. These include Eastwood; Brazil's Hector Babenco, back with his tale of the notorious prison Carandiru, produced by Sony Pictures Classics; Italy's Pupi Avati, who's returning with Il Cuore Altrove (The Heart Is Elsewhere); and Canadian Denys Arcand, with The Barbarian Invasions. »
