One of my favorite movies of all time. This off-beat and unconventional tale is not only a masterpiece of quirky performances, but also of unique framings, cinematography choices, and soundtrack. It's funny, bittersweet, and poignantly sad, and manages to hit all the right notes down the home stretch.

Has very high expectations with thi particular film. Billy Brown (Vincent Gallo) kidnaps a young girl named Layla (Christina Ricci) and asks for a favor. She is introduced to his parents Jan (Anjelica Huston) and Jimmy (Ben Gazzar). The lead was unlikable from the get-go though Ricci's character was cooperative. Billy had a bad childhood because of the unloving parents obsessed with music and football. Soundtrack was fair and soundtrack flimsy. Insufficient humor tough the drama was solid. Direction was superb which boasts of the unique framing and bullet in the head shots. Pace was precise and overall premise realistic. Buffalo '66 is an effective dark picture that proves that with love and reformation, things can go good despite the past.

"Buffalo '66" by Yojimbo

A small-time waster fresh out of prison kidnaps a girl and forces her to pretend to be his wife in an attempt to fool his dysfunctional parents into believing he's living the good life. Buffalo '66 is trying oh-so-hard for "indie chic". Writer-director Vincent Gallo essentially presents us with a love story for emotional retards, as his "hero" Billy has clearly been emotionally scarred by his upbringing at the hands of his Denver Broncos obsessed mother and self absorbed, emotionally distant father. It's a nice idea and I'm sure female fashionistas who fancy themselves as preferring "troubled" and "complex" men (as long as they dress like rock stars and have perfect bone structure, of course...) to jock types think it's the best thing since sliced bread. The biggest problem is with Gallo ...
