I think what billybrown's point was before the discourse degenerated was that believing all the negative publicity about Brown Bunny is foolhardy. See the movie for yourself, then judge. Each and every movie is a potential waste of time; this is the price we pay for loving movies. The good ones make sifting through the bad ones well more than worthwhile. "Buzz," hearsay, rumor, and criticism are never acceptable substitutes for seeing the damn thing yourself and making up your own mind.
"It was probably banned because it was a terrible movie" doesn't make a lick of sense, in any case. Plenty of terrible movies are released to great popularity and acclaim. A movie's content may make distributors jumpy or restrict where and when it can be shown, but the content of a film getting people in an uproar merely distracts from the real issue, which of course is the quality of the film. Brown Bunny is one of those peculiar cases, but I for one am going to do everything in my power to judge the film on its merits AS A FILM when I see it. Not all the endless, (mostly) meaningless chatter that has surrounded it.
