  For all of the negative noise over lanky, scraggly actor Vincent Gallo's second self-written, self-directed feature film, "The Brown Bunny," it's not as bad as suggested. It certainly didn't merit the reaction at the Cannes Film Festival, where it was greeted with catcalls and universal disdain. True, it's a flawed, self-indulgent and, at times, tedious endeavor, but it's no unmitigated disaster. The title "The Brown Bunny" is somewhat gratuitous, even with the script's two references to rabbits of a particular hue. In no way is this some cute 'n' cuddly animated cartoon or a Disney-fied adaptation of a children's book— questions of quality aside, it is definitely adult fare. A minimalist travelogue for much of its running time, "The Brown Bunny" recounts, in deliberate filmed-through-the-windshield fashion, the dull cross-country van trip of pro motorcycle racer Bud Clay (Gallo). A sad, somewhat creepy man on the verge of breakdown, Bud is plagued by memories and longing for his girlfriend Daisy as he drives west to the L.A. bungalow they shared. Much of the attention directed at "The Brown Bunny" homes in on one very graphic sex scene between Gallo as Bud and Chloë Sevigny ("Dogville") as Daisy. It's a small albeit crucial moment, not quite an epiphany. If the rest of "The Brown Bunny" had been as inflammatory, the film might've merited the fuss surrounding it.
