Dopo aver scontato cinque anni di carcere al posto del vero colpevole, per pagare i debiti contratti scommettendo sulla squadra di football di Buffalo, Billy Brown ritrova la libertà. Con un'idea fissa in testa: uccidere il giocatore che considera responsabile della sconfitta dei Buffalo...

In Buffalo '66 twisted,but strangely alluring parolee Billy Brown has, in the hands of Vincent Gallo -- writer, director and star of this bleak, outstandingly creative film -- a seething, angered depth, molded by a lifetime of parental abuse, poor judgment and very bad luck and his wounded, embittered performance is captivating, and so is his filmmaking.
Greasy, resentful and just released from a five-year turn in the pokey -- he'd made a false confession to get out of a $10,000 debt to a bookie -- he has returned to his home town of Buffalo, New York, because he is desperately grasping for anything familiar to give his life some semblance of control.
He visits his vile, hateful parents (Anjelica Huston and Ben Gazzara)but only after wandering into a dance studio and impulsively kidnapping Layla (Christina Ricci), an innocently voluptuous tap student, to pose as his wife. It's a pathetic attempt to persuade them he has beaten the odds of his unfortunate upbringing, but it backfires.
"Buffalo '66" is a gloomy, slice-of-life drama about people with miserable lives, but at the same time it's a vicious satire of dysfunctional suburbanites.
Failing to find security at home, Billy drags Layla to the bowling alley of his childhood championships -- only to succumb to gutter ball syndrome. Later he demands she pose with him for photo booth snapshots to mail home the next few Christmases and feign that they're a happy couple "spanning time."

Adorably Rubenesque and dyed platinum blonde, Ricci gives a gradually and subtly revealing performance as Layla that helps cement the creative vivacity of the film.

This is Vincent Gallo's (Tetro, Funeral) directorial debut. It is a movie of fine acting, writing, and direction, and it features some truly fine cinematography. Buffalo 66 is one of the finest independent films that I have ever seen, and perhaps the most fascinating character study I have yet to see on film.

Christina Ricci provides gret performances as Layla, the odd but tenderhearted tap dancer who provides Gallo's Billy Brown with the only true love he has ever received. Ricci's performance is understated, and she relays just as much heartfelt meaning in one glance of her beautiful, dark eyes as Gallo does in his barrage of rapid-fire monologues.

There are also fine supporting performances from Ben Gazzara aka Jackie Treehorn and Angjelica Huston, as Billy's utterly dysfunctional parents, Mickey Rourke, as a sleezy bookie, Jan-Michael Vincent, as Billy's touchingly loyal friend and owner of a bowling alley.

On top of all of this, Gallo provides a wonderful performance as Billy Brown-a man who has spent so much of his life pining for love and tenderness that he doesn't know how to deal with it once it is staring him in the face.

This film is just bursting with absolute joy, very intense at times hilarious at others, vincent gallo's acting and directing are genius, you start by hating the character and as the film progress's you begin to really empathise with the situations he has been put through...christina ricci is also brilliant i especially enjoyed the tap dancing scene and the excellent ending...definatly recommended to someone who likes there movies offbeat but full of charm.

Oh the trials and tribulations on on-line reviews. I do like this film very much, but was struggling with some people's 5 star reviews of it, describing it as the greatest film ever. So, given that I'd written recent 5 star reviews for Les Enfants Du Paradis and The Red Shoes, I thought 4 stars was probably more appropriate.

Vincent Gallo's film has all the hallmarks of the cult film - quirky acting, mumbling dialogue, illogical plot points, long periods with nothing happening, bizarre cameos for Hollywood stars (in this case Ben Gazzara and Angelica Huston), many unlikeable characters. However, Buffalo 66 also has more than enough redeeming qualities to turn the film into a (maybe minor) film classic (can such a thing exist? I think probably yes). Vincent Gallo is (for me) terrific in the lead role - arrogant, cruel, sexist - but, ultimately, strangely affecting, and even romantic. Christina Ricci is absolutely superb in this film, and is, for me, one of the 'lost acting geniuses' of recent times, who, by the age of 18 had made this film, The Opposite of Sex and The Ice Storm, two other magnificent performances, only to get lost (artistically) in the Hollywood machine.

The film is also of note to contain one of the great scenes in cinema - that towards the end where Gallo enters the strip club to the tune of the Yes song Heart of the Sunrise. This is cinema magic.

Should I revert to 5 stars - no I'll stay with 4.

Buffalo `66 is as fine an example of independent film-making as you're likely to find. Vincent Gallo's quirky, semi-autobiographical film, in which he stars as Billy Brown - a slightly unhinged, emotionally undernourished convict who kidnaps the surprisingly willing Layla (Christina Ricci) to pose as his wife - is easily the controversial New Yorker's best work to date and features stellar performances from the likes of Angelica Huston (almost unrecognisable as Brown's uncaring, football-obsessed mother Janet) and Jan-Michael Vincent - Brown's long-suffering best friend, Goon. Gallo is equally impressive in the role of Billy Brown; he's unpleasant, and prone to violence, but not entirely dislikeable. In fact, at times, he's almost child-like, and we sympathise with Brown, largely because of what we come to know of his background. The scene in which Billy visits his parents' house, for example, is one of classic suburban dysfunction - and hilarious at that.

There's a sense at times that Gallo is playing himself, rather than actually 'acting'; at others, he appears to be hamming it up a bit for comic effect (see the scene in which he forces Layla to pose with him in a photo booth and repeats the phrase "we're spanning time" ad nauseum) but he can be forgiven on both counts as a) the film is, as mentioned, a semi-autographical work and b) he is undeniably amusing.

Where this film impresses most, however, is in the sheer inventiveness and effectiveness of some of Gallo's techniques as director and Lance Acord's cinematography. Buffalo `66 has all the hallmarks of an indie, art-house film - but, refreshingly, these features actually contribute to our understanding of Brown's character and the advancement of the film's plot.

Brilliant stuff.
