About the Movie
C.I.A. Agent Billy Brown (Vincent Gallo) brings his wife home to meet his absurdly dysfunctional family. Only Billy's not really in the C.I.A., and his "wife," Layla (Christina Ricci), is actually a young tap dancer he just kidnapped to impress his ridiculous and unloving parents (Anjelica Huston, Ben Gazzara). In reality, Billy's whole life is an empty lie. He's fresh out of prison and now on a deadly mission to hunt down and kill the Buffalo Bills kicker whose botched field goal, he believes, ruined his life. However, Billy's new hostage may ruin everything. Their crazy attachment blossoms into a desperate and oddly beautiful romance that may or may not be a sweet enough substitute for revenge.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Cool, stark compositions and the occasional audacious visual trick give Buffalo '66 a memorable look even when its narrative enters the occasional uneventful stretch.
Fresh: Vincent Gallo, gaunt and pop-eyed, with a gaze of sexy, hostile paranoia, has the look of a born sociopath or a born movie star (or both).
Fresh: Gallo, who also wrote, directed and scored Buffalo '66 , is a smart young filmmaker, not least in his casting.
Rotten: Gallo is talented and energetic, with an ability to estheticize bleakness. But, succumbing to overindulgence, he shortchanges his film of the most interesting thing in it.
SO SO GOOD
I love this movie, so glad they've got it for sale here. I could watch it again & again. Vincent Gallo is the epitome of a mixed-up lifelong reject, his friend Goon is priceless, and Christina Ricci is at her best despite the fact that everyone hated that she's not anorexic in this movie. She's absolutely gorgeous. The cinematography is breathtaking, the music is unforgettable. Watch it w/someone else so you can have an inside joke for years by randomly saying, "I can't drive a shiftercar, I'm used to LUXURY," and "I love you, we love each other, don't touch me," as well as the gem "we're spanning time." Angelica Houston & Ben Gazzara are perfect as oblivious, negligent, fanatic but insane parents that scream such things as "why are you pointing that knife at me, did you come here to kill me?" and "honey, go get the Billy picture. you know, that one." There's also innocent, supersweet, codependent romance. Who doesn't love that?
really bad... ricci is for sure my top 5 fav in actress category & still i narrowly got through it. i dont know what any one who was involved with this film was thinking.
This movie is beautiful! It had me laughing from start to finish. If you have a quarky sense of humour don't hesitate to watch this. It's a Classic.
