Synopsis


Buffalo '66
Actor Vincent Gallo (The Funeral, Palookaville) made his feature directorial debut with this drama about convict Billy Brown (Gallo), released after half a decade spent behind bars. Drifting into downtown Buffalo, Billy kidnaps teen Layla (Christina Ricci) and has her pose as his loving wife when he visits his parents (Ben Gazzara and Anjelica Huston). Layla praises him and goes along with his fanciful tale that they met at CIA headquarters, where they both worked. Mom and dad not only fall for this, they are entranced by Layla, who soon begins to embellish her act. When she claims to be pregnant by Billy, he hustles her out to a bowling alley and on to a restaurant, where they run into trampy Wendy (Rosanna Arquette), who might be Billy's former girlfriend. Eventually, Billy seems ready to track down and kill the person he feels was responsible for his five years in the slammer. Shown at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    This is a great film that is long overdue for a US blu-ray release. I am so glad to finally have this in my collection. The only bummer, and it's a big one, is that there are no extras other than the theatrical trailer. I would love to have some features on the production of the film or a commentary by Vincent Gallo, an interesting fellow to say the least. Nonetheless, I still highly recommend this to folks that enjoy intimate films with interesting and memorable characters. Great performances by Vincent Gallo and Christina Ricci. 'Span time' with Buffalo '66. You won't be disappointed.

    I think that "Buffalo '66" is an excellent independent film that features superb performances. The "15th Anniversary Edition" Blu-ray needed some new special features added, all that's included is a trailer for the film. The video/audio presentation is good for the most part, there are some scenes that obviously could have used a more detailed restoration; but it's decent overall.

    This movie is very quirky and odd. When I first saw it, it intrigued me and was a little weird. But at the end you see that they are meant to be.
