Promises Written in...Cannes??

Promises written in Water (remember? The film we were never supposed to see because he just made it for himself.) has a Wiki page now.


The interesting part - it says the following: 


Promises Written in Water is a self-financed 16-millimeter black-and-white Snuff Film and is due in 2010 at The 63rd edition of Cannes Film Festival.


Oh, really?

  1. Seriously doubt it'll show at Cannes. The only reason BB showed at Cannes was the financial situation with the Japanese financiers (he needed an extension on the completion date), and afterward I remember him saying the only good thing was he got a lot of free clothes. I see no reason in going through the headache and hostility of Cannes again just to try to promote it when he himself said he's ambivalent about if it ever gets released.

    Also, no way is it a "snuff film". And the only link on the page is a link from that article from last year. The person who created the original page is a "Roberta Spirin", but her Twitter and website are dead, so I have no idea what connection if any she has to this movie, or if it's even a real person.

  2. and look at the wiki sites history:
    "Promises Written in Water is a 2010 drama film created and stolen from Roberta Spirin, written and directed by Vincent Gallo, with mainly unknowns actors, although Sylvester Stallone’s son, Sage Stallone, appears." what is that supposed to mean? who is roberta spirin?

  3. it gets interesing...
    she can be found on FB:

    My name is Roberta and three of my accounts have been disabled in less then a week. Been in a fight with Facebook administration ever since trying to rescue my 2600 friends and my work. I tried to contact Mark many times, but 'something' is stopping him from contacting me.

    (An original idea I had as far back as 2005, and was told by 'several people', that it would be impossible to accomplish)

    PS: It was never my intention to do a reality/snuff film.

    I have been exploited in various ways. I was involved in something without my knowledge.

    Not only I have been working without my knowledge but I have not been paid for it and looked after properly and worse, it has cost me money and prevented me from earning it.

    Leaving me an emotional wreck now because it was never my idea to make my private life public.

    Ah, Vincent Gallo did a movie using my voice. It's a snuff film. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Promises_Written_in_Water -
    It was basically made on the grounds of Conspiracy, Discrimination, Organized Stalking, Complicit, Assault, Breach of Privacy, Slander, Psychological Abuse, Conspiracy Of Silence, Perventing the course of Justice, Police Miscondut and Negligence and Violation of All Human Rights.

    I did not Authorize 'obviously' and I was for quite a few years totally unaware of the private recordings. They've trapped me in a very abusive situation.

    I am really, really, really upset and need a lawyer!

  4. wow. maybe she´s crazy? she claims here privacy was made public (in promises written in water??) but the film isnt public, how could she have seen it?

    "Roberta Spirin : They are forcing me to commit suicide to retain copyright rights of my work. It is serious, somebody help me! The authorities just do not do anything. I have worked very hard .. it is my work. get the fuck out prick! If you don't sign an agreement with me, you know someone else will do ... get out, or pay ...me!!...Bleeding people for money ... Don't you have enough already?"

  5. idk It probably will never come out. That Roberta Spirin should have used the synopsis Gallo gave in a recent interview. I can't find the link anymore. The synopsis should come from Gallo not Spirin. I doubt she has even seen the movie.

  6. Some one should just e-mail the man and ask waht the deal is...

  7. If you dig deeper, the whole things sounds really strange and potentially creepy.

    On the one hand she could be mentally ill (paranoid schizophrenia/delusions/grandiosity, etc), but really who knows. If she used to be an escort, maybe there is some kind of connection, since VG has said before he often works with non-actors and people who don't know they're being filmed (the girl in Brown Bunny that he picks up in Reno, for example). Maybe he tried to contact her to get her to sign a release for footage she's in, and she freaked out? Or it could just be that the movie has a similar theme to something she dreamed up years ago, and she's just going with it and letting her craziness take over?

    I wonder if Gallo knows about this or is dealing with this, and that's why he doesn't care if it gets released?

  8. Reading through her writings again, I tend to think she's in the movie and it was being made without her knowledge (since he has said he made the movie with non-actors, people not knowing they're being filmed, etc). And now for whatever reason she's freaking out (possibly because she is crazy).

    "Not only I have been working without my knowledge but I have not been paid for it"
    "I did not Authorize 'obviously' and I was for quite a few years totally unaware of the private recordings."

    But the whole thing about her needing to commit suicide and it being a huge conspiracy seems like mentally ill delusions/ideation.

  10. wiki has been changed. no more mention of the word snuff.

  11. I don't think she is crazy or mentally ill, but she's obviously getting quite freaked out by the whole thing. Not to mention, I think they are trying to shut the bitch down now. Besides, you should expect anything coming from Gallo. The guy is clearly fucked up in the head, and in desperate need of a come back. The snuff part, it may have been removed by now. I don't think he expected the bitch to expose him to public ridicule...

    Gallo Blasts Buffalo Lawmakers Over Sister's Conviction

    Eccentric actor VINCENT GALLO has slammed his home town of Buffalo, New York, after his sister was incarcerated by local police for helping an abused child.

    The BUFFALO 66 director and star is furious JANINE GALLO is serving a six-month jail sentence after becoming involved with a local child who was allegedly being abused by her father.

    Janine - who owns a convenience store in Buffalo - says she took pity on the girl, who begged for help her escape from serious physical violence, and filed a report with social services.

    However, the girl's family responded by taking out a restraining order and then launching a smear campaign against her, suggesting she was sexually interested in the youngster.

    When Janine took a phone call from the frightened girl, she violated the order - and was sentenced to the maximum jail time by Judge FRANK CARUSO in September (03).

    Vincent fumes, "My sister is an incredibly likable and popular and generous person. What's she supposed to do when the girl calls her hysterically crying?

    "I've never heard anybody having this rough a time. They're treating her especially badly because of these completely false allegations that she is a sexual predator. If you reach out to abused children in America, be careful.

    "Nothing is reasonable in Buffalo. I'm used to doing business in New York and Los Angeles - it's coming back to me why I put my thumb up on the Interstate when I was 15.

    "It's ridiculous, inbred, like DELIVERANCE with smokestacks. I take a s*** on the city."

    "Roberta Spirin
    Her ego slowly digests itself, she scrapes
    away her skin, trying to find her inner self,
    she stands naked, vulnerable, her suffering
    exposed to the world."

  25. Uh? What a load of old shite, probably written by a gay man for gay men? She is just a very good hooker doing her thing as usual, sucking something here, giving something there ... you can't masquerade reality, Roberta, loves herself too much.

  26. Dear Helena, you like your daughter were very famous on the streets of Rio di Janiero for prostitution, so, do not defend your daughter because you are just as bad. She has been neglecting you for years, always hated her family and never wanted to talk about any of you.
    Your daughter is a psycho bitch who uses people to get what she wants. I'd love to label names, but I do not think that's fair on innocent and respectable people that she has used.
    Roberta doesn't love herself. She doesn't even knows who she really is. Well, she calls herself Salome, in the past she used to have many names. Is it a brazilian tradition?
    Vincent Gallo was just an excuse she found to abuse people's privacy. He's not the only or first one and won't be the last.
    Her past is dark than dark.
    If you are so concerned about your daughter, you should have given her a better education when she was little, instead of abandoning her like you did.
    You are a cruel woman, who just like a cheap prostitute uses money to put yourself in a better position.
    Your daughter must be extremely embarrassed of your actions.
    Get yourself a life dear.

  27. Roberta is an amazing and talented woman. She's very much loved and desired by many and even though we don't talk anymore, I will forever respect 'Roberta' as this incredible example of human strenght.

  30. I can tell you, as someone who used to go out with Roberta Spirin over 11 years ago, that she IS completely and utterly fucking mental.

    I also recently tried to befriend her on Facebook after not having spoken to her in person for several years, and she added me, and then proceeded to abuse me verbally before blocking me, mainly because I don't have immense piles of money. She claims to be, these days, a high profile prostitute working mainly for millionaire men (Arabs etc) in London hotels, but when I dated her told me she didn't have to work as her Dad was a diplomat or something back in Rio. Either or neither could be true. She also used to claim she was late for dates with me because, get this, she was "shagging her analyst"

    One thing's for certain though: her succession of mega posh flats in Knightsbridge, Soho and several other similar areas must have been paid for SOMEHOW. Either way, I wouldn't trust her. I wouldn't trust Gallo either, he's a dick, but he doesn't need to be slandered by this vapid slapper- whose own child, it should be noted, was taken away from her for, as far as I know, very valid reasons indeed. Cobblers to Roberta Spirin, I hope she gets every piece of ridicule and bankruptcy she deserves.
