I’ve never been to Sundance, but from what I’ve been told, it has this magical effect on filmgoers wherein they dole out standing ovations for movies that are merely just mediocre. I suppose it’s the higher altitude or maybe just the latent ganja in the air that comes from hundreds of Hollywood types descending on a quiet town in Utah, but people certainly have intense reactions to what they see. Take, for example, the man above who was so bothered by a film called The Woman that he went bonkers in the theater and had to be escorted out. Watch his rant above. And be sure to file this one under whitewhine.com

  1. I just wish we could see the rant he gave in the actual theatre that got him kicked out – amazing.

  2. An edited version of this would make a great commercial for the movie. Much better than “I laughed, I cried, I saw it three times!”

    “One woman passed out, the film was so disgusting.” WHERE CAN I BUY TICKETS?!

  3. If only you could see the rant I’m currently staging over that unnecessary apostrophe in the film’s title…

    1. Joanna: is it “guy get’s mad”? That had me raging as well. I’m glad to see someone else shares a hatred of unnecessary apostrophes.

        1. I, too, cringed when I saw that title.

          I made my son read Eats Shoots and Leaves because he has no clue about that kind of stuff. Since he’s a teen and will soon be on his own in the world, he at least needs to know how to punctuate properly.

          1. That’s a great book…if you’re British. It’ll get him by in the world, but there are some uniquely British quirks to it. Elements of Style is excellent and classic AND there’s a great illustrated version that’s just beautiful.

    2. There’s a children’s book called Greedy Apostrophe: A Cautionary Tale that is truly awesome.

  4. I was on imdb & there was a link to a story about this. There’s a link to an interview the director gave to Movieline regarding the incident & I kinda like the guy. (the director, not the ranting dude who kept looking at the camera making sure it was getting his best angle.) Anyway, it’s a horror movie where the “monster” is a sadistic human who abuses a mountain girl, and the girl seeks revenge when she’s well, a woman. McKee’s right, there’s nothing f’in scarier than a human monster, which is why it makes people so uncomfortable. Which is why I still haven’t seen “Precious.” Ranting dude gave the movie some great press though!
