Vincent Gallo is Suing Los Angeles, Because Of Course

Of all the random shenanigans actor/filmmaker/online purveyor of fine goods Vincent Gallo has pulled, suing the city of Los Angeles kind of makes the most sense of them all. Consider: According to TMZ, Gallo filed a lawsuit to shut down the Arts District Business Improvement District plan, which uses taxpayer money to patrol, safeguard, and improve the downtown L.A. arts district. Gallo reportedly wants the program shut down and $1.3 million returned because it's purportedly wasteful and provides "no benefit." In other news: The Brown Bunny star's personal services are still available for purchase! Now that's money well spent, I'm sure. [TMZ]

    Love him or hate him (I kind of love him) this guy is fascinating. From the ridiculous ego, to the stories of him firing an actress on the Brown Bunny and "picking the first girl we see to replace her," to telling Ebert he hopes "he gets cancer and dies" (only to later apologize for being prophetic) when Ebert ripped him a new one at Cannes, to offering the chance at dating him if you send him naked photos... the guy is totally interesting. This is just one more thing in a long list of crazy stuff he's done.

    Oh, and Buffalo 66 is one of the best films ever made and features some of the greatest performances ever from Ben Gazzara (RIP), Anjelica Huston, and Christina Ricci. And an early masterpiece of cinematography by Lance Acord.
