U2 showed up for the launch of their 3D concert movie this weekend, with Al Gore as part of their entourage. The film is largely irrelevant at a spectacle like this, but the highlight for many in the audience was hearing Bono tell one guy to "fuck off" when he asked the wrong question during the Q&A. He asked if Bono would ever make a film with social relevance.
This report from an entertaining group of Texas alt-yahoos on the shuttle bus from Main Street down to the Yarrow cinema. They traded insults, they traded tips for doing Sundance, but mostly they traded critical reflections on Bruce LaBruce's new film, Otto, Or Up With Dead People.
"It was like gay zombie porn for the sake of gay zombie porn," one said.
"There was like some messages," the other countered, like "acceptance, we're all zombies, that shit.
"It was a porno! But not just butt-fucking. More like tear a hole in a dude's stomach, eat out his intestines, then fuck the fucking hole!"
Not much more to say, really. LaBruce once was a film critic, too. I don't know if he could do better.
