JCVD is probably the biggest buzzed movie of the fest. Everyone walking out of the first screening raved about how good it is. "That monologue! like ZOMG!" yadda yadda yadda. I was curious about it, not excited. Yes it was good. Yes Jean Claude cries during an extended monologue and it's pretty impressive. Yes it's exactly the kind of movie that could reform someone like Jean Claude Van Damme out of a joke status and back into a star. It's a very smart move on his part. It's basically a redemptive cry of frustration falling on perhaps the best ears in the world to accept such a message: the Fantastic Fest audience.

I'm not sure how well this will do anywhere else, but JCVD is now a hero in the Alamo halls.
