Joining the company of such trenchant cultural critics as the Straight's Michael Mann, filmmaker Uwe Boll has posted a glorious rant about crowdfunding.
"Basically my message is fuck yourself," says Boll, having seen his Kickstarter campaign for Rampage 3 go down the tubes.
Entitled "fuck you all", Boll's video, uploaded to YouTube on Sunday (June 7), is admirably clear in its message.
"What retarded amateur idiots, collecting money on that absurd website," he says. "It's all fucking bullshit and I'll never do it in my life again... Goodbye."
But wait! Things really get going in the writer-director's second video, which was posted immediately afterward.
"They're laughing about you," he fumes, waving a copy of Hollywood Reporter at the camera while levelling a number of satifyingly low blows at the likes of Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, and Jennifer Lopez ("Fucking demanding Mexican bitch...!")
"The most bullshit business with bullshit idiots, one after the other, all fucking each other in the asses," Boll continues, quite reasonably.
Basically, Boll's rude analysis of Hollywood, the star system, and some of its more conspicuous "humanitarians" is righteous-as-fuck, even if his language isn't.
Anyway, look below to find out why George Clooney hates you, why Ben Kingsley is a "pussy", why the Marvel Universe is full of "retarded idiots", and why we need to "kill the rich".
Boll was trying to raise funds for the third film in his Rampage series. According to the Straight's resident Boll-head, Al MacInnis, "There are other decent recent Bolls, but Rampage 1 and 2 are the essential ones."
This comes at a notably positive time for the locally based auteur. Boll's film career stands as a two-decade affront to good taste, but his newly opened Gastown restaurant, Bauhaus, is widely acknowledged as being impressively short on turkey.
