Uwe Boll has always seemed a sort of semi-amusing character on the sidelines of the film world, cranking out one poorly received, and shoddily made movie after another. He’s also been very vocal frequently over the years about his various problems with critics and the industry. But he seems to have really gone off the deep end this time.
Following failed campaigns to raise money for “Rampage 3” and other movies on Indiegogo and Kickstarter, Boll hit YouTube with two video rants in which he tells his fans and Hollywood: “fuck yourself.” His mostly incomprehensible ramblings chastise moviegoers for not giving him money to make his sequels, but then being fine with supporting a movie about “a retarded wizard in the forest” (is he talking about “Maleficent“?).
In a longer video, he targets Hollywood in general, moaning about George Clooney and his pals not supporting his drama “Darfur,” the general shallowness of the industry, Marvel movies, and Jennifer Lopez for some reason. And finally, he decries the foreign investors because all they want to do is have sex with supermodels.
It doesn’t make much sense, but check out the videos below. And maybe someone should Kickstarter a campaign for Boll to get some therapy. [Variety]
