The best movie I have seen in years. Finally something unique, interesting,dark and funny! Right of the bat you feel for Billy Brown.

Right of the bat you feel for Billy Brown. Vincent Gallo is perfect, Christina Ricci is at her very best (also gorgeous) and Angela Hudson had me laughing and crying at once. The soundtrack is amazing as well with a brilliant scene of Ricci dancing to King Crimson. Expand

I enjoyed every single second of this movie. The filming, the acting, the music was all fantastic. A man with nothing to live for is saved by a woman he just met earlier that day.

Clearly made on a budget, there is no fancy CGI, no big car chases and no big fight scenes. It’s a piece that relies very much on performance to keep it together and on that front I can’t fault it.

It’s a piece that relies very much on performance to keep it together and on that front I can’t fault it. Both Vincent Gallo and Christina Ricci did a fine job, as did Ben Gazzara and Anjelica Houston. I guess it’s one of those films that’s more about the inner workings of the mind; you find yourself asking what is the motivation behind Billy’s actions and what exactly does Layla see in him? I have to admit at first I really didn’t like the character of Billy, but he grew on me as I came to understand him more. It’s a film that took some time to get going but I found it a worthy watch eventually.

SteelMonster’s verdict: RECOMMENDED

My score: 6.6/10

Buffalo '66 is an easy film to dislike, especially in the opening minutes. The way the female lead is mistreated arouses anger.

The way the female lead is mistreated arouses anger. But a few more minutes in and the film begins to reveal an edgy, dark humor and bitter honesty that is somewhat reminiscent of Coen Brothers and Jarmusch films. I expected to be shutting the movie off and instead found myself rating it higher as it progressed. I give it a positive rating on account of the talent displayed in the acting and the directing and also on account of the risks it took. Expand
