Vincent Gallo wouldn't be in his kitchen if he'd had the decency to change his name to Smith.
It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

The more I know about Vincent Gallo the less I understand his place in any art world. He has some street cred with the hipsters because he flies around with this "lone madman" stamp to him and because he embodies so well the act of "self promotion" where art and marketing supposedly collide. Yet only an idiot would think this is something valuable. As an artist, without his self promotion tactics, in all of the areas he has stepped on he's barely mediocre. He has been a mediocre actor, writer, musician and filmmaker. He made one decent film in Buffalo 66 but there are a ton of other way better films made just in the same year. The Brown Bunny is easily one of the worst films I've ever seen in my life, an absolute bore and masturbatory exercise, impossible to like without making a HUGE effort to find something interesting in it. His music works mainly as a practical joke. The truth is that he's obviously a deeply damaged person whose pain somehow sips through some of the work and that has given him some credibility in certain circles who believe raw emotion is enough to compensate for all the other ineptitudes he shows. For a while he was close to a person I know and I've heard some really fucked up disturbing stories about this guy, who for all accounts seems to live to hurt the people around him. The guy is empty inside, living in a bubble of self hatred that blows up from time to time and spits on everyone who's near. Of course I'm not saying anything you can't see by yourselves with all the shit that comes out about him all the time, and in his own words. It's hard to even pity him.

Vincent Gallo Joins Japanese Thriller 'Human Trust' Co-Starring Kôichi Satô & 'Oldboy' Star Yu Ji-Tae
via The Playlist

With a trailer for his unreleased 2007 sex comedy “Oliviero Rising" hitting the web a few weeks back, the rare presence of Vincent Gallo on the film scene recently grew just a bit more noticeable. The actor/director's own output, like directorial effort “Promises Written In Water,” remains an unknown in terms of a proper release, but in terms of appearing before a camera, a globe-trotting Japanese film will feature Gallo later this year.

In a characteristically unexpected move, Gallo has been announced as the final cast member for director Junji Sakamoto's suspense drama “Human Trust,” which finished filming in Japan, Russia, Thailand, and the U.S. this past spring. Centered on the legendary “M Fund,” a supposed stash of treasure from WWII, the film follows a conman Yuichi (Kôichi Satô of “Sukiyaki Western Django”) as he's hired to travel across the globe and steal the money by two mysterious men.

Gallo plays an American investment banker who learns of this development, and employs an assassin, played by “Oldboy” actor Yu Ji-Tae, to track Yuichi down and kill him. The film is based on the titular novel by Fukui Harutoshi, who co-wrote the script with Sakamoto, and it also stars Shingo Katori, Tatsuya Nakadai, Mirai Moriyama and Arisa Mizuki in the supporting roles.

“Human Trust” is scheduled for an October 19th release in Japan.

Will It See The Light Of Day? Vincent Gallo Reveals New Project 'April' Co-Starring Late Porn Star Jamie Gillis
Source: Playlist

Aside from brief roles in films like “Two Days In New York” for Julie Delpy or Japanese director Junji Sakamoto in “Human Trust,” Vincent Gallo has so far largely kept his promise of focusing on ethereal self-made works—of the moment and sheltered from the “dark energies of the public.” Along with his discussed philosophy, he denied his 2010 directorial effort, “Promises Written on Water” a proper release, and so when a new, mysterious project appears on the actor’s web site, temper your expectations accordingly.

In the “Acting” section of, a new film credit has been added at the top—an 88-minute film entitled “April”—with only a few sparse but intriguing details accompanying it. Alongside the predictable credits of  “written, produced, and directed” by Gallo (also playing the lead, “Seth Goldstone”), there is also a co-star, James Ira Gurman. If that actor sounds unfamiliar, it is actually the birth name of adult film star/director Jamie Gillis, who died in 2010—an unfortunate fact that brings up questions surrounding the origins of “April,” and just how long it’s been around (the production year is listed as 2013).

Is 2013 an actual release date? A note of completion? Or simply the finished film that Gallo wanted to let “rest in peace” around the time of “Promises”? As ever with the artist/filmmaker, don’t expect a comprehensive answer any time soon, but hopefully we’ll see some portion of it before he whisks the film off to his archives.

hey I just scored a copy of Gallo's Brown Bunny commentary that he did for the Japan DVD.  Haven't listened to it yet but though I'd share.

Any chance of upping this again?
