Michael Fassbender Is Wry, Wet, and Wearing Long Johns. We Repeat …

By

John Maclean's smart and sensitive Slow West was well received at this year's Sundance Film Festival, casting Michael Fassbender as a mysterious outlaw who helps guide a young man (brand-new Nightcrawler Kodi Smit-McPhee) through the American frontier to reunite with the woman who left him behind. It's a good movie, and one you can currently check out on DirecTV before its theatrical and on-demand bow May 15. I would be remiss, though, if I didn't say that at least some of that Sundance buzz had to do with a certain scene where a wet Michael Fassbender walks around in long johns, and as it happens, Vulture is exclusively debuting the scene in question. Obviously, that won't motivate your click. You, reader, are a passionate, pure-hearted devotee of independent cinema, and your fealty to feature film has nothing to do with handsome, talented men in clingy undergarments. (We actually have a medal for you. You can pick it up at the front desk.)
