Do you know any movies like this?
I think itís pretty idiosyncratic (this coming from someone who hates the rest of Galloís output), but I would say I get a somewhat similar vibe from:

Piercing (2018) - the closest match I can think of at the moment
Forgetting the Girl (2012) - close second
Killer Joe (2012)
Hotel Splendide (2000)
Spider Baby (1967)
Jojo Rabbit (2019) - I guess?
Force Majeure (2014)
Heavenly Creatures (1994)
Eveís Bayou (1997) - canít explain why I think itís similar, but I think so
Beautiful Kate (2009)

Organised more or less by extent of similarity.

Out of these, only Piercing and Spider Baby might be seen as equally unique, but still worth checking out the rest Iíd say.

The only other movie he released was "The Brown Bunny", right? I didn't like it at all.



I'll check out those titles. Thanks!

Let me know what you think.

Heís got two more, Promises Written in Water and April. But yeah, The Brown Bunny is the most (in)famous one (Robert Ebert being the reason I guess) and I hate it as well. But heís also got a huge amount of shorts, which are a body of work in themselves. Anyway, Iíve always felt Buffalo Ď66 was a welcome and fortunate aberration.

He said he would only release those at film festivals. I've never heard of his shorts, but I'll try to find them.



I LOVE his interviews.. I guess I also love anyone who'll tell The Establishment to f off.

Yeah, heís a character. Though as someone who has a phobia of cancer of sorts, I donít find the Ebert thing remotely appropriate. I actually think that was incredibly creepy, one of those cinematic touches that do bleed into real life.

Anyway, as per this article - https://www.theguardian.com/film/fil...-written-water - he sure makes it difficult to track his work down, but itís definitely feasible, torrents and whatnot. The aforementioned stuff has been shown somewhere, so must exist on the web.

I just need to remind myself not to start hunting it out now.

I know all about torrents, etc... He's the only director in my lifetime who was an anomaly. There were a few like Kaurismaki (retired), Ken Loach (retired, but not the most diverse director), Mike Leigh. At the time I got into movies (late 90s), Kubrick had just died.



Let me save your time. No one will ever find it. I've used video extractors, and even on YouTube, I know how to get around onlyfans or being a member. Just watch a few seconds of a live show, and then click on "History", and you can watch it from the beginning.


As for Gallo, he showed it at Cannes, and for some strange reason, doesn't want anyone seeing his movies -- except for the people he criticizes.



But in case you're ever looking for something difficult, I've found a lot of things using different browsers, but even if you use Google, enter


"Vincent Gallo -youtube" and then click VIDEOS, so you get all the results NOT on YouTube.

Thank you - this is fun. I use Tor as well when need be. Perks of job. I may be overly optimistic, but I do think theyíll be found sooner or later. And for once I agree with The Guardian (never thought Iíd say that) in that itís a kind of hubris on his part.

Have you ever seen his website? It's beyond ego, and it seems he's upfront (unlike others) about a love for money, so maybe if someone offers him a great financial deal, it's possible. But he also seems very stubborn, too. He said in an interview how "The Brown Bunny" ruined his life, and how he wishes it was never released. I wonder what his thinking was. "Buffalo '66" had a hell of a cast, and I'm surprised it's not more popular than it is. I'm curious how he got Ben Gazzarra, Christina Ricci, Mickey Rourke, Rosanne Arquette, Jan (he just passed away), and a few others. I don't even know if it made money. But some will then make their 2nd movie self-indulgent, hoping he acquires enough fans so many would see it, and it seems like they did, but for all the wrong reasons (un-simulated oral sex). I think politics is a big reason, because he was the only one back then who liked George W. Bush, and actually said he came on Stern for that reason. I think W. is the worst, but I like people who go against the grain, as long as they do it in a fascinating way.



If "Promises..." and "April" were a bigger productions, it's possible one (out of many) could leak it online, and then so many have it that there's no way to erase it. I know Sage Stallone is in "Promises..." and maybe Sly buys the distribution rights (I have no idea how that all works) but I've searched many times.. I've found some interviews (compilations) that are not on YouTube, and so I try to make sure I have them on multiple hard drives because I've lost information many times.. Just a week ago, I lost 28 journals to mold/water damage when I was in Europe, Australia, Asia... even a journal I kept when I was 15.

Iím a paper person with Italian leather journals going back decades, so I empathise. Thatís very annoying. Did something get flooded? And yes, multiple hard drives is wise, Iíd say cloud storage is a must too.

Havenít seen his website. Will check out.

How do you mean an anomaly? In what way?

I like Buffalo 66 but not so much the Brown Bunny.

Betty Blue is a film with similar themes. And of course Godard's Breathless.

Yes, my car unfortunately. I put a few of them on the front, hoping the sun will help a couple, just to save a few paragraphs perhaps.

His talent and personality for that time.

Thatís horrible, sorry to hear.

Well I certainly don't think he is at the top of the talent list for the late 90s into 2000s. But he sure has a distinctive personality.
