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.

"Buffalo 66" (1998) is directed by Vincent Gallo (Promises Written in Water). The film is about Billy Brown (Vincent Gallo) who kidnaps a tap dancer, Layla (Christina Ricci), after getting out of jail. He asks Layla to pretend to be his wife so as to impress his parents who don't realize he was even in jail for the past five years. His ultimate goal is to murder the former Buffalo Bills football kicker who missed the field goal that would have won the game at the Super Bowl XXV in 1991 and made him a small fortune in winnings. This is an interesting and quirky film that employs many innovative techniques to tell the story of this frustrated man who eventually finds love.

This is an excellent looking blu-ray, but it has no special features at all.

Rough, disheveled film like it's principle protagonist. Feels cobbled together but honest and gritty. No frills here. No slick Hollywood manipulation. Funny and depressing at times with an upbeat ending. A classic.

This is a surprisingly entertaining movie. The characters exhibit no admirable qualities at all but one is left no choice but to root for them. Vincent Gallo is fantastic in this role. He manages to walk a fine web made of humour, psycopathy and extreme vulnerability and he makes you believe it. Christina Ricci provides such a contrast to his character and their relationship is so compelling, you won't regret buying this DVD.

what else can i say about this film thas hasnt been said already, the praise is well deserved and it being vincent gallos debut film only makes a person wonder how great of an artist he truly is, not only as a genius musician who also did the score for the film and the music works so well with the film, but also as a writer and director, one of my favorite films of all time , and definately in my top ten, cristina ricci also deserves praise for her role, and i couldnt picture anybody else playing it. buffalo '66 is quite an accomplishment

Buffalo 66' is a gratest movie I have ever seen. It's main mattar is love, but the love story is not ordinal film's one. Although two central caracters are cool and cute, they are not portrayed as dramatic, special parsons. They are presented as usual even more like pitiful in all of the film. There are few dramatic scenes, and uneventful time is streaming. A world of the film is very small, and it's time flows slowly. That is why maybe someone would think it as boring. But I felt that the story is very natural and the love illustrated in the film is quite real. They gradually grow tender of each other as they know of each other. Although there is little description of the reason of their love, a persuasion is exist.It may be good that needless things are cut out. Because of the simple story, film's musics and images are also effectively memorable. Buffalo 66' is just a great work of art.

what a debut for Vincent Gallo, Buffalo '66 really makes u part of the movie with a thought provoking plot and excellent acting. The plot and characters work so well u cant help feel bad for the poor Billy Brown but at the same time its very humorous. I rented it then purchased it and i absolutley love it, so i highly reccomend u go watch this movie
