There's something raw and emotional from this love. However, the Stockholm syndrome steals the tenderness of this couple. Nevertheless, the antisocial tendencies of Billy's personality and Layla's ambition for affection come together in a jarring road trip into a new border. Plus, the final scene in the club was very engaging and compelling.
An enormous film, only possible with the fantastic collection of ingredients from the acute, painful autobiographical fuel & narrativization to the unrestrained,vibrant,genuine, never predictable, never simmering creative vision. Every single scene is a masterclass, and the whole is so pliable and giving it just can't be overstated what a work we have here. Watch in intended 1:33 and see the boom mics and projectors.
Vincent Gallo's first film is one of the best film debuts ever. It is a wonderfully aestheticized film, grimy & washed out but fluid & intimate in technique. It's a very funny film, almost endlessly quotable, but Buffalo '66 is raw & tender unlike most I've ever seen. It's a forgiving & compassionate work of art & Gallo gives one of the most vulnerable performances I've ever seen an actor give. A great great film.
Buffalo '66 is a film that stays with a person long after their first viewing. It's a film about a lonely man who kidnaps a young woman in order to impress his parent's whose only interest seems to be the Buffalo Bills. It's a film told by a man who seems to feel the same way his protagonist feels; frustrated with the way his life has turned out. Buffalo '66 is a film that is criminally underrated.
