All you need to know is that Buffalo ’66 is probably the single, greatest indie film ever made. Written, directed, and starring the ever-entertaining (and completely arrogant) Vincent Gallo, this film just…. shines. It absolutely fucking shines in every possible way.
It’s dark, depressing, hopeless, funny as hell, absolutely romantic and PAINFULLY FUCKIN’ HONEST.
An absolutely perfect movie. Also starring Christina Ricci, the late, great Ben Gazzara, Kevin Corrigan (as “Goon”), Angelica Huston, Mickey Rourke, and Rosanna Arquette. PERFECT cast.
Much, MUCH thanks to Sarah Katherine, my longtime friend, who introduced me to this incredibly perfect film way back in spring 2001. Thank you, Sarah. Thank you also to Jacquelyn Gallo, for also telling me about the film, as something I “absolutely need to see”, around the same time.
Seen it 200+ times since… and it never, EVER gets old.
PERFECTION. YOU NEED TO and WILL OWN THIS DVD. Right now.
