Vincent Gallo United States, 1998

Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Buffalo '66

Like La Belle Noiseuse, an extended dramatisation of the relationship between 'actor/model' and 'director/artist', with Gallo leading Ricci's performance throughout, dictating her actions, defining her personality, posing and prodding until finally, he gets what he wants. It's also an exploration of Gallo's personality: brash, caustic, volatile... yet punctuated by a desperate vulnerability and a need to be loved.
