    You didn’t include The Brown Bunny? This also uses the Bonneville Salt Flats pointlessly, in a scene singled out by Roger Ebert in his brutal review. The movie also inspired one of Ebert’s best bits of snark: “I will one day be thin but Vincent Gallo will always be the director of ‘The Brown Bunny.'”

      If this had appeared in Wikipedia’s list of films set in Utah, I would have been all over it. It’s a terrible movie, one that is only endured by anyone as a result of “the scene” at the end. That’s a great line by Ebert, apologies to Winston Churchill I believe.

      I don’t think I’d be willing to endure the Brown Bunny again, even if Chloe Sevigny were going to service ME at the end. Self-indulgent pretentiousness has never been more tedious.
