Yahoo! News reports that a director I have never heard of is going to quit after an insipid film he made got booed at Cannes. One would think anyone making a movie called “The Brown Bunny” would rather expect to be booed, no?
Maybe his expectations were too high.
After all, sex sells, right? He managed to convince Chloe Sevigny (sp?) to participate. Maybe “endure” would be a better term–the Times (of London–no link, sorry) overview sounded like the activity was graphic enough to be discomforting and long enough to be unendurable.
Getting a name actress to do prOn ought to count for something with the Cannes crowd. Oh wait, the French started doing that a couple of years ago. It’s hard to be avant garde with last season’s fashions…
