There is a certain charm behind the exterior of Gallo’s isolated and irritated character in his personal as well as biographical, self proclaimed “masterpiece” "Buffalo 66’. With director and actor Vincent Gallo behind and in front of the camera, it becomes implausible to even remotely consider the film not being a personal project, with such time consuming segments having much to do with family life (such as the dinner conversation, or lack of dinner conversation between himself and his parents) and a lot of the flashbacks spliced in with footage from the actual movie. You may find yourself in awe and shock at the surprising amount of talent that had gone into the cinematographers department, supplying the audience with much difficulty differentiating a dream sequence from reality. The film centers itself around Gallo, playing a character not so far from a visual representation of his rather large ego, who after being released from a 5 year jail sentence, decides to take a trip to his parent’s home. The conflict interferes with the film when Bill Brown (Vincent) comes to the sudden realization that before he went away on his confidential government mission (his 5 year prison sentence) he had told his parents he was a happily married man with a well paying job working for the CIA.This becomes a non issue after kidnapping a young and adorable tap dancer (Christina Ricci) and puts her to work as his lawful wedded wife, making her pretend to have been married to him. Ricci willingly agrees to take part in the act as Billy’s wife, and it becomes quite obvious at this point that she takes an immediate liking to his character, regardless of how poorly he treats her. Her bizarre attachment to Gallo’s childlike characteristics sets the audience up for nothing more than a charming and strange reaction to the twisted, half-relationship between the two that begins to unravel. Billy’s prude and childlike mannerisms make him one of the more unique characters portrayed on film in a while. These element, synced with the overwhelming cinematography and colors used in the movie, that give off a dreamy, holiday vibe (some sequences like the red and black spotlighted singing scene between Christina Ricci and Billy’s father) which make you feel like you’re walking through a Christmas shop under the influence of some psychedelic drug make for an excellent gem of a movie. If you haven’t heard of it, I highly recommend you check it out. 8/10 stars.
