This is the brilliant debut of director/writer/actor/musician, Vincent Gallo. It is an independent film which Gallo, after having played small parts in 13 feature films, wrote, directed and scored. Casting himself as the star, Gallo managed to bring in the exceptional talents of Christina Ricci (at her sweetest ever), Ben Gazzara, Anjelica Huston, Mickey Rourke and Rosanna Arquette.
Buffalo ’66 is a movie that takes you places you have never been before. It is, if your tastes accommodate it, a thoroughly expressive piece of art which will spark within you many emotional reactions.
Buffalo ’66 is recognised as a cult classic and rightly so.
As always, we recommend you don’t ruin any surprises by reading spoilers or watching trailers.
For an added treat, watch this hilarious clip of Gallo defending himself against three film critics on a British television programme. Gallo is known for his outspoken views and it is a delight to watch him in full swing here:
