The Brewster Boys and the Eve of Infamy review by He is also set to play a crucial role in helping the MCU grow its self-proclaimed "cosmic" universe of movies well into the s — perhaps because he's easily the director whose work feels the most distinctive, rather than the product of a well-oiled, wildly successful corporate machine.
Next to Marvel Studios chief Kevin Feige, Gunn could end up as one of the most influential creative forces at the single most lucrative creative organization in filmmaking today. But the path Gunn took to get to such a rarefied position is as unlikely as a foulmouthed, spacefaring raccoon named Rocket winning the hearts of a grateful nation. Prior to his career supernova that was Guardians of the Galaxy in , Gunn had only directed two features, 's Slither and 's Super. Then he birthed a batshit insane web short Humanzee , about a man who sends his sperm to Bratislava to create an ape-human hybrid offspring.
His affinity for the freaky and the fringe stretches back to his first break in filmmaking, writing 's Troma Entertainment schlockterpiece Tromeo and Juliet — in which the titular heroine deliberately transforms herself into a cow with a giant penis. That darkness has lingered through just about every facet of Gunn's life, sometimes to his great distress, often at his open invitation.
It has also fueled his peripatetic Hollywood career, and helped him shape the filmmaking voice that first caught Marvel's attention. There's nothing else. I have a girlfriend, but I don't have a family. I have pets. That's it. He burst into laughter at the intensity of his commitment.
Having five younger siblings is ideal upbringing for a future filmmaker: You're never without actors, and you're never without material. Growing up with one is an interesting and unusual thing.

The tight-knit, rambunctious Gunn household was also steeped in pop culture — and, for James especially, comic books. He already had a huge collection by the time I was old enough to notice it. Gunn's passion for comics has certainly served his career well, but as a child, it was not something he was eager to share. His voice, usually a couple notches louder than necessary, dropped to a murmur. I hid it from people. Very Catholic. I think my brothers and my sister and I always had an open way of thinking about things, and that wasn't always a valued commodity within the town I grew up.
Starting around fifth grade, Gunn said that his school became dominated by "pretty maniacal bullies" who made his life hell. I guess I thought that's what kids did. The catalyst for that behavior, according to Gunn, was his school's monsignor, Russell J. At the time, Gunn said he knew Obmann was giving young boys in his class alcohol and pornography — it was only much later that he understood the full magnitude of Obmann's behavior. This was in fifth grade. Gunn said Obmann never targeted him, and eventually the priest relocated to a different parish. Obmann died of cancer in ; his St.
Louis Post-Dispatch obituary notes he retired in after serving in multiple parishes, but does not mention any abuse. A representative for the St.
Louis Archdioceses did not respond to a request from BuzzFeed News to comment. Still, the experience was scarring for Gunn, in part because he said no adults in his life seemed to take it seriously. They just thought we were making up something about the monsignor at our school.
Deeply alienated from so many of his classmates, and disillusioned by the authority figures in his life, Gunn burrowed further into his pop culture obsessions. He especially delighted in horror, particularly the classic Universal monster movies. I even felt sorry for Wolfman and Dracula and all of them. As a teenager, Gunn's fixation with movie monsters shifted to more flesh-and-blood "rock-and-roll villains," namely punk icon Johnny Rotten and shock rocker Alice Cooper. Hang him!
So much fun that Gunn yearned to experience that kind of adulation for himself. He started playing music in high school, and by his late teens and twenties, he was headlining bands and touring. But his ambition never matched how he assessed his own abilities. I thought I was a really potentially great songwriter, and I was a really great performer.

But I just was not a great singer. Next, Gunn tried to become a novelist, enrolling at Columbia University's graduate fiction program in the mid-'90s. To satiate his lingering desire to be onstage, he started performing monologues on the Lower East Side of Manhattan that he called "a cross between stand-up and a one-man show and a poetry slam. Which is to say, he needed money. A happenstance connection through his brother Matt landed Gunn an interview at Troma Entertainment. The New York-based ultra-low-budget film company existed on the outskirts of the filmmaking galaxy, first rocketing into cult cinema infamy with its exploitation horror hit The Toxic Avenger.
That freaked me out. The experience working on Tromeo and Juliet gave Gunn a crash course in what would become a crucial skill for joining the MCU: learning how to weave his own creative impulses into a vivid, and rigid, cinematic style. That was the stuff for me. Gunn also recast Friar Laurence as a pedophile priest. As exploitation movies go, Tromeo and Juliet was a genuine hit. The New York Times even raved that the film was "deliriously grossed-out" and "goofily exhilarating.
His irreverent, human-scaled approach stood out as a bracingly fresh approach to the genre, and the script attracted a solid cast, including Rob Lowe, Thomas Haden Church, Paget Brewster, and Judy Greer. The character development was good, as was the dialogue. Skip to main content. Search form Search by author, title, keywords etc. Remember me. Forgot Password? Not Yet Registered?
