Self-cancelled Shane Carruth is #cancelled

Very surprised to find out that his muse Amy Seimetz has an open restraining order against the Director.

I wonder if he jumped ship before being pushed?

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck. Well, I guess that explains all Carruth's cryptic comments about getting out of the industry, he must've known when all this came out he'd be done.

Yet another layer on the shit sandwich that is 2020.

" The photo’s timing has led many people in the film community to wonder if Carruth is trying to take attention away from the release of Seimetz’s acclaimed new film “She Dies Tomorrow,” which opens in drive-in theaters July 31 before a VOD debut August 7."
Ehhh... I never heard of it before this and quite liked her first film. Not sure how it takes attention away from her film? Def will attribute attention her film receives to him obviously, and I can easily imagine their whole relationship being him making weird power plays like that when looked at in that context.


Totally explains Carruth's recent behaviour alright.

I googled who he is and I still have no idea who he is.

Glad he's cancelled though.

He's not that well known but I would consider Primer and Upstream Color to be CaB faves.

Struggling to understand this one. So it's pretty horrendous behaviour even if he thinks himself innocent which he obviously isn't because he's done this. But then, why? Why throw your dirty linen out in such an awful and career-nuking way? Conscience? Irony? Control? Wha?

More details have emerged. Whatever the truth of the allegations, Carruth is doing himself absolutely no favours with shit like this.

https://variety.com/2020/film/news/shane-carruth-accused-abusing-amy-seimetz-1234717339/

Quote
Seimetz filed for the order on June 12, saying that Carruth’s messages had become increasingly disturbing and that she was terrified of him. In a May 15 message, which is attached to her request, Carruth allegedly said “You are Shiva, the goddess of death. I see you. I will know when it’s time for you to be done… You should be scared. You don’t know what I’m going to do… You should be scared.”

Quote
Update, 12 p.m. Tuesday: The hearing on the restraining order was held via telephone on Tuesday morning. Carruth dialed in and interrupted the judge at least a dozen times, even after being repeatedly admonished to be quiet. Unable to mute his line, the judge continued the hearing to Aug. 21 so that it could be held either in person or via video.

Joshua Rosenberg, Seimetz’s attorney, informed the judge that Carruth had violated the order to have no contact with Seimetz 20 times since the last hearing on July 6. The judge, Commissioner Laura Cohen, advised that she could take any alleged violations to the police. The temporary restraining order remains in place until the next hearing.

I guess him being an unstable control freak might explain why all his career momentum seemed to evaporate after UC, big projects he's been attached to mysteriously fizzling out, etc.

Aware his careers fucked if/when that comes out, possibly wanting it to be over with after 15 years of torment with very little progress anyway.

Perhaps he thought being an unrepentant abusive shit is the way to become a Hollywood insider.

It really does seem so, and from his behaviour over the past couple of months alone he seems like a psychotic cunt at that, I'm fond of Primer and really liked Upstream Color, but I've no interest in ever watching them again now.

Only saw the latter and conspite being the kind of thing I'd normally be interested in thought it was utter bollocks, arrogant obtuseness.

Same, especially seeing as upstream colour is him and her

In one or his recent I'm Outta Here interviews, the comment section was full of people saying good riddance, people saying they'd worked with him and he'd been a horrible cunt, didn't know what to make of it at the time

Primer, while ambitious, has jud apatow levels of disregard for its female characters, they're just bitchy window dressing

Who ever said their will be plenty of good stuff left if we shunt of the abusers and thugs was right tho. Gone from being sad about never seing his film about container ships to not giving a shit

I adore Upstream Color - one of my favourite films. I can't imagine ever watching it again.

So this is where me and cancel culture depart ways.
Who the fuck are we to care about a messy ending to a dysfunctional relationship? It is not pretty but that I can see he is not a serial abuser of women, kiddy fiddler, racist, cock waving misogynist or anything else that demands a public execution.
On the face of it this seems like a private and brutally painful experience that should stay between two people.
I suppose I'm cancelled now.

I'm with you, except for the fact that he's the one who made it "subtly" public in a fairly cunty way. It's not surprising people have soured on him as a result of that (and a few other things). That said, he's probably a bit "unwell" for whatever reason, and it's easy to forget that lots of people do equally stupid/strange things among friends or on their own Facebook pages - it just wouldn't warrant anywhere near the same level of attention.

Aside from any of the harassment and mental abuse, according to that article he literally strangled her. That is high level domestic violence, somewhat more than just "a messy ending to a dysfunctional relationship".

He made it public. And, for fuck's sake, grow up and don't use "cancel culture" like your average Daily Mail reader. Just mentally replace it with "expecting people to be responsible for their own words and actions".

Are you famous tho? Can't be cancelled unless you have some sort of fame, you're beneath cancellation if you're not famous. If your not famous, you're just an opinion haver on a forum like

I would disagree but support her decision. Like I do with real wife and her enjoyment of the TV show Friends

Yeah, he's obviously very unwell. Inexcusable behaviour, and his reaction to it is baffling and unsettling. I hope he's able to realise this and get some help before he does anything else fucking stupid, and moreso that Seimetz is able to move on from this whole thing and recover.

Another big fan of Upstream Color here and probably not going to be able to watch it again. Ugh.
