"Cocksucker blues"

See Bud Clay. Bud Clay is depressed. We don't know why Bud is depressed. Maybe because he has a pretentious symbolic name. See Bud drive around the country looking depressed. See Bud stop to fill up the gas tank. See Bud get back in his car and drive off. See Bud drive around the country looking depressed. See Bud do things like this over and over for ninety minutes. See audience fall asleep.

Bud also likes to hit on girls. Bud has odd tastes in girls. He only likes girls who have flower names, like Lilly and Rose. Bud is into symbolism.

See Violet. Violet is the girl he finds behind the counter at a gas station. See Bud beg Violet to go with him: "Please (long pause), please (long pause), please come with me." Violet likes guys who talk like cavemen.

See Bud have terse conversations with people. Bud likes to repeat the other person's words. Like this: "I don't remember you?" "You don't remember me?" "No." "No?" See Samuel Beckett roll in his grave. See Bud get back in his car. See Bud drive around the country looking depressed. Repeat.

Bud is fascinated with bunnies. See Bud handle bunnies while pretentiously contemplating the fragility of life. See the brown bunny. Wait--there is no brown bunny. Maybe that scene got taken out when the director cut thirty minutes because bad people in France made fun of him.

See Vincent Gallo. Vincent plays Bud Clay. See Vincent's name appear in the credits over and over. Like this: "A Vincent Gallo Production," "Written Directed Edited and Produced by Vincent Gallo," "Director of Photography: Vincent Gallo." See Vincent go on an ego trip. See Vincent blow ten million bucks on a film that looks like your old home movies.

Vincent likes slow-paced '70s movies. See Vincent try to imitate Two-Lane Blacktop. See Vincent get in way over his head.

See Chloe Sevigny. Chloe plays Bud's girlfriend. See Chloe suck Bud's dick. See Chloe try to have a conversation with Bud while sucking his dick. Like this: "You like sucking my dick, don't you?" "(mumbling) Uh-huh." "You're not gonna suck anybody else's dick, are you?" "(mumbling) Uh-uh." See audience collapse in helpless laughter. See Chloe's career go down the toilet.

See end credits. See audience feel ripped off. See audience go to BABY GENIUSES 2. See audience have more fun than they did at THE BROWN BUNNY. Repeat.
