Plot – Spoilers:
The Brown Bunny is one slow moving movie and is best left for when you are in the mood for a lengthy depressing indulgence.

Bud is a motosport racer who’s just finished a race and on his way to California for the next one, in his truck. He first encounters a young girl at a gas station and quietly pleads with her to leave the store and come away with him. She agrees and he parks outside her uncle’s place so she can pack her stuff. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, he drives off without her. This forms the pattern of his trip of California – interacting with women and suddenly dropping them.

There is a woman called Daisy who keeps coming up and at one point you wonder if this character even exists/existed. Bud seems intensely depressed and it’s a miracle he’s even able to compete professionally. Eventually a pattern to the women he interacts with emerges. They all have names of flowers – Violet, Lilly, Rose and Daisy.

His interactions with the various women feels a bit eerie even though he comes across, mild-mannered without a threat of violence. There is a point though to all of this eventually and the entry of Chloe Sevigny does dramatically answer all our questions.

There are long stretches of him driving around or sipping coffee in silence which can get boring if you’re not in that sort of frame of mind. Luckily though, there’s some great background music to fill most of those empty spaces in the movie and his life. John Frusciante’s music is part of the soundtrack although it doesn’t appear in the movie. Apparently was used instead, as “inspiration” while the movie was being made.

Favourite Scenes:
1. The interaction with the hooker Rose. Not sure what about it, but Rose was charming.

2. The blowjob scene:
Chloe Sevigny wrapping her pretty mouth on a thick cock is good enough reason.
This scene was controversial at the time and got Chloe fired by her agency. Whether Mr. Gallo actually came in her mouth or not, remains a mystery though.

Either its a glitch or my ID was stolen, I just saw this movie and was surprised seeing my comment here. Or maybe this comment ment to be on a different movie. Either way ending was very sad.

If you’re curious about watching this movie, just watch it. Be patient, and just wait. That was depressing.

So I did some research into Chloe Sevigny and Vincent Gallo and they were not not dating and they weren’t even lovers, so yeah, thats’s pretty hurting to give a full on, unsimulated BJ in an indie movie, not a major Hollywood movie where the pay is substantially better. I used to think she was hot, but now I just look at her as a whore willing to suck the cock for a role while at the same time be portrayed as a crackhead. I think she still gets roles in movies and series because if she can suck a mean dick on screen, then she is willing to do it on the casting couch. That said, this movie wasn’t depressing, it was depressingly sad! The characters were shallow, with superficial interactions. Arrogant Vincent Gallo thinks he an just kiss and fondle his way through town with complete strangers in a black van like the kind serial killers use. Unrealistic and boring as hell. I’d rather watch paint dry. The BJ scene was probably the only good 2 minutes worth watching out of the entire movie and that’s near the end, so just skip the entire movie and just go to the last 5 minutes and save yourself the agony of boredom watching this meaningless disaster!!!

I don’t know where you did your research but according to IMDB: “Chloë Sevigny claimed in interviews that the fellatio scene was not simulated. She said “It was tough, the toughest thing I’ve ever done, but Vincent was very sensitive to my needs, very gentle. . . . And we’d been intimate in the past.” Let me emphasize that last part: “And we’d been intimate in the past.” So there’s that. Now if that wasn’t true then I’m sure someone would have mentioned this to her and she (or her publicist) would have contacted IMDB and had that piece of trivia removed. Also (again using IMDB) she appears to have had steady work since then and I doubt she got those roles because “she is willing to do it on the casting couch.” Finally there are a lot of A-list actors and actresses who have had roles where the role they portrayed was a crackhead which is why it’s called “ACTING”. But that’s OK. Don’t let that stop you from drinking your Kool-Aid.

IK Jeff Alexander and John Frusciante on the score is a dream. And it makes sense, some of the most divisive movies can have really great scores that influence people to stick around

Yea… srry ppl r being rude. They probably watch movies w rape in them without blinking. In reality the weird thing about this film’s fanbase as well as the database’s as that people are always missing the point of the preservation of all types of movies, not using them to try and desensitize themselves to human nature. I accidentally watched Irreversible as a kid and have studied extreme film for a long time. Edge bros exploiting films to seem hard are always around, but a lot of them grow up at some point. Ik I did. it’s a shame admin made something so cool yet for the wrong reasons. hope they grow up too.

I didn’t watch this movie, just surfing the site for a movie and this showed up.
I read the description and my reaction was to say out loud “you fucking weirdo”.
Like that’s just creepy and the admin who wrote that description needs a reality check.

Blow job scene at the end only reason to watch. Otherwise slow and boring.

It just looks like a boring movie and an erotic and pornographic movie without a sense that has no reason to stay in a site like that, a site of really effed up movies..

The slow pace is a good buildup for the denouement. That the bj scene is the only reason worth watching is bullshit. It all makes sense in the end… Movie makes me think on Greek poem Εν απογνώσει. by Konstantinos Cavafy.

“From the imagination, from the illusions
on the lips of other young people he asks for her lips;
he seeks to feel her love again.”

If you’ve seen this movie, I hope for auteur context you also watched Buffalo ’66. The filmmaker wears his heart on his sleeve, for sure. He’s an abusive egomaniac; a very angry man who finds it very easy to antagonize people and victimize himself. He corners people or pushes them away and you see that admittance in his work. Here’s what Christina Ricci had to say of him:

“Just because he’s bad at hiding it doesn’t mean other people aren’t really good at hiding it. Everybody’s creepy. He just happens to be really loud about it. And he’s not even that creepy. He’s just kind of a jerk, but he’s not lascivious.”

I have a girlfriend who reached Gallo as she’s a big fan of Buffalo ’66. He started flirting with her online, we couldn’t believe our eyes. He stopped contact immediately after that.

Truth is just as interesting if not more interesting than fiction, sometimes.
