Gallo's Brown Bunny In Shock Award Win

Maverick director VINCENT GALLO's critically mauled movie BROWN BUNNY has scooped the VIENNA INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL's top award.

Eccentric Gallo - who is seen having oral sex performed on him by co-star CHLOE SEVIGNY in the controversial movie - was forced to make a public apology for the film after critics at the CANNES FILM FESTIVAL described it as 'self-indulgent', 'banal' and 'without a worthwhile moment'.

However, judges at the Austrian event were so impressed by the re-edited version of The Brown Bunny they handed it the FIPRESCI (INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF FILM CRITICS) PRIZE.
