Boston Globe

By Wesley Morris
The Brown Bunny is certainly about how vain Gallo is. Yet rarely has narcissism produced such a handsome work of cinema.

San Francisco Chronicle

An idiosyncratic document of sexual obsession and guilt, it alienates as easily as it mesmerizes.

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
It's hard to deny that Gallo has caught the freedom and melancholy, the intoxicating aimlessness, the lonely twilight beauty of a solo road trip in a way that no previous filmmaker quite has.

Chicago Sun-Times

By Roger Ebert
Make no mistake: The Cannes version was a bad film, but now Gallo's editing has set free the good film inside. The Brown Bunny is still not a complete success -- it is odd and off-putting when it doesn't want to be -- but as a study of loneliness and need, it evokes a tender sadness.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
Quite possibly the biggest ego trip ever to play Cannes, or anywhere else, at any time.

By Aaron Hillis
The film stubbornly refuses to fill empty space with dialogue or adhere to any structure other than its own downbeat atmosphere, forcing viewers to be intensely patient or squirm. It's the best film I’ve seen in a while that I wouldn't recommend to anyone.

New York Post

By V.A. Musetto
As evident from The Brown Bunny and his directing debut, "Buffalo 66," Gallo is talented, although in an unconventional way. Call him an angry young man with a future.

Wall Street Journal

An excruciatingly embarrassing display of ego and ineptitude.

New York Daily News

By Jami Bernard
It is not the worst movie ever made, as some critics claim, but it does a passing imitation.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
In his second feature as a director, Gallo acts as writer, director, producer, star, cinematographer, production designer and editor. Thus, the failure is all his.
