Billy Brown just got out of jail. Now he's going to serve some real time. He's going home.
After five years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, billy brown, a down-on-his-luck-romantic, comes home to seek revenge on a local field goal kicker who cost him his freedom and buffalo its super bowl dreams.

"A deadpan original...  The New York Times
"Comically surreal. Touching and hilarious! Imaginative and provocative.  Premiere

Editor's Note
An electric directorial debut (seven years in the making) by New York artist/musician/model/actor Vincent Gallo, BUFFALO '66 combines the experimental techniques of the French New Wave and the realistic grit of seventies filmmakers such as John Cassavetes, resulting in something inventive and original. Gallo portrays Billy Brown, who has just been let out of jail. Before returning home to visit his parents and murder the kicker who missed the field goal that sent him there in the first place (in order to repay a debt that he didn't have the money to extinguish), he kidnaps a bored ballerina (Christina Ricci) and makes her pretend that she is his wife. Though she doesn't seem to object to the abduction, Billy is emotional, angry, and sensitive. As the trip progresses--including an explosive visit to his childhood home, where his indifferent parents still reside--the two continue bicker back and forth, but begin to form a real bond.

James Berardinelli's ReelViews 8 of 10
Buffalo '66 proves to be a successful debut outing behind the camera for Gallo. It remains to be seen whether he'll direct any more films, but, if he does, hopefully he won't lose the edginess and sense of urgency... It's Buffalo '66's tone, not the reprehensible main character, that makes this an engaging motion picture. - James Berardinelli

Time 8 of 10
Gallo...is a smart young filmmaker, not least in his casting. Gazzara, angrily mourning his lost career as a local lounge singer, and Huston, obsessing on the Bills' football frustrations, are glorious eccentrics. And Christina Ricci, as the tap dancer Billy forces to play his faux fiance, is just lovely. She falls into instant love with her abductor, and with a kind of patient ferocity redeems his sanity. And this says nothing about Gallo's own demonic charm as Billy or his directorial boldness in juxtaposing the emotional surreality of his story with the bleak reality of his hometown in winter, creating a sort of casual but strangely haunting weirdness. - Richard Schikel
