5.0 out of 5 stars Buffalo '66 July 15 2004
Buffalo '66, directed and written by Vincent Gallo, is an incredible film about this guy named Billy Brown, played by Gallo himself. Billy was a man who was severely down in his luck, from having neglegent parents, terrible luck, and dysfunctional relationships. The root of his anger and bitterness definitely comes from his parents. His mother (played brilliantly yet uncharacteristically by Angelica Huston) was so obsessed with the Buffalo Bills that she disowns Billy since he was born on the same day the Bills won the Super Bowl in 1966 and she couldn't go to the game (and they haven't won since).The story starts off with Billy being released from a 5 year jail sentence ("I was innocent") wandering the streets of Buffalo looking for a bathroom. He finds one at a dance studio, in which he runs into Layla (played by my favorite actress, Christina Ricci). He kidnaps her and somehow persuades her into pretending that she's this girl named Wnedy and that they are married, along with a whole barrage of lies, to impress his parents, not that they really care anyway.After that, Billy and Layla still go places together, but yet Billy is still very bitter and won't easily open up to Layla. He had many emotional scars and trauma (all shown in the movie) and contemplated doing a terrible act of revenge. Then he experienced an epiphany in terms of what would happen if he did it, with Yes' classic epic "Heart of the Sunrise" used effectively, and from there he finds himself in a way, and the film has a surprising ending. This film dealt with human emotion in a non-cliched way, and contained great music and even better acting. Definitely a new favorite film for me.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lost Souls April 14 2004
Vincent Gallo`s directorial debut is an intriguing indie effort, even if a too self-absorbed and indulgent one. The movie focuses the redemption of a young man straight out of jail (Gallo himself) who kidnaps a girl (Christina Ricci) and then visits his parents, making her pretend she`s his wife. Although this cinematic experience is a tad too difficult to get into at first, it still offers an interesting watch with some inspired moments. The acting is overall good, the characters are quirky, the direction is atmospheric and grim enough and the plot has a couple of surprises along the way. "Buffalo `66" is an offbeat road movie that has some good ideas as well as dull parts (sometimes the pacing is too slow and it has a few repetitive moments), yet the result is convincing as a whole. The story has similarities with Mike Figgis` "Leaving Las Vegas", but Gallo manages to avoid the cheap melodrama and the annoying depressive tone of that movie. A good debut and a fine addition to the dysfunctional family myth, this is a film worth watching.
Compelling and absorbing.

5.0 out of 5 stars story of normal human fears and emotions Oct. 15 2003
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is incredibly well made. It is an original story about a typical guy who kind of makes a mess out of his life and must live with that fact. It was written and directed by Vincent Gallo, he also stars and did the music.
It's not an extremely high budget movie, but that doesnt matter. the writing and acting are better than most big budget movies. the look and feel of the actors and sets are perfect. the slightly low quality of the film actually adds to the movie(this may be due to the type of film purposely chosen, not that it is poor cinematography, just grainy film)
anyway, if you are someone who needs an over the top story or lots of action, you will probably not like this movie. but if you can appreciate an honestly written story based on normal people living in a real world, you will love this movie. it is very funny and well... uh, its good. here is a plot summary:
Vincent Gallos' character has grown up in middle America with a slightly rough child hood. nothing extreme, but very neglectful parents. anyway in his early adulthood he makes a very big mistake and places a huge bet on a football game with money he doesnt have. he loses the bet and cant pay, so he is offered a choice: admit to a crime and do time in prison in place of a friend of the gangster he owes the money to... or else.
he does the time, but while he's gone he has a friend send letters back home and he tells his parents he is gone working for the govt. the movie starts with his release from prison.
very funny, very sad, but ultimately exteremely uplifting and inspiring.

3.0 out of 5 stars Buffalo chippy-chips Oct. 4 2003
Movie with a big reputation and critical acclaim (mostly). Ho hum. Just a barely average movie.
The positives first. Um, lets see here...
1. The music was pretty decent (Yes, King Crimson)
2. Christina looks nice, but only has two looks in this movie - "pout" and "gaze".
3. A few funny moments.
4. Somewhat interesting camerawork. Except for the boring parts.
1. Hopelessly unbelievable story. Christina's character "Leyla" (but going by Billy's imaginary only-previous-girlfriend's name "Wendy") had many chances early on to escape her loony kidnapper, but chose not to. We have no character development for her, so we don't know if she is emotionally unstable, rebellious against her family, etc. Actually, the fact that she ends up liking the unlikable grimey ex-con loser points to fact that she has no taste, or sense.
2. I can not emphasis enough how much of a loser the character of Billy is. He would not have survived 5 years in prison without getting his teeth knocked out and his nose broken because he was such a messed up ass. He needs some serious psychoanalysis ("Hold me a minute" - she does - "Don't touch me!") Give me a break. His fashion sense has to be seen to be unbelieved. Although Billy seems to see the light at the end, I doubt he will make any lasting recovery. Bottom line - "Does not play well with others."
These 2 large negatives pretty much balance out the 4 positives. It is a professionally-made movie, and the participants seem to be trying, however.
Supporting cast of Mickey Rourke as a bookie, Jan-Michael Vincent as a washed-up alcoholic bowling-alley owner, and Ben Gazzara and Angelica Huston as his parents are decent.
Recommended for fans of Christina Ricci, and maybe residents of Buffalo.
DVD has no extras. A generous 3 of 5 stars.
