Billy is a cynic, a pathological misanthrope, possibly trauma-stricken, and yet Buffalo '66 is an earthly and humane, even warm film. Layla's character is just as wrong-headed as Billy, with her incurable naivety and Stockholm syndrome, but she's not a caricature. It's hyper-realist in its attention to the minutiae of human behavior (he needs to pee, she waits forever for her hot chocolate, etc), but from the clash of personalities, Gallo draws endless surprises and great underlying humor.

An unwatchable glimpse into a terribly boring, overly-confident Vincent Gallo, who would be better served in the film industry by getting coffee for the directors he so badly wants to imitate. Even an interesting historical footnote--Scott Norwood's missed field goal in Super Bowl XXV--is trashed to the point of oblivion. I hated this movie.

Don't think a film has ever bothered less with coherent dialogue/narrative structure as the film seems to be an appendage to Gallo's redemption seeking quest for a past often only hinted at, with Gallo in complete control on and behind the screen. I thought about turning it off after 20 minutes, but I'm happy I didn't. The scene where Gallo takes a leak and moments that follow seem to be the crux for keeping me in my seat. A stylized experience from a unique individual. Recommended !

The film has a certain undernourished poise that I appreciate, and it builds, through a unique cadence, to about 3 moments of grace that I found truly remarkable. In between, though, I couldn't help but feel the narcissism of the filmmakers, as if its worldview of naturalized, justified, polite stupidity (and for that matter, misogyny) went beyond its characters.
