Gallo transforma um personagem antipático e instável em uma figura comovente, enquanto Ricci, em uma de suas atuações mais sensuais, quase rouba o filme.

Buffalo '66 left me confused and unsatisfied, yet it's not an easy movie to dismiss.

Actor Vincent Gallo makes a feature directing debut with this bizarre, self-indulgent tale of a troubled guy, played by him in a narcissistic mode, who has never reconciled his unhappy childhood.

Funny and quirky, with a great performance by Ricci. Gallo quickly grows annoying, though.

Weird. It's easy to get a little lost in this one. It's total indie flick and tries to be nothing more. Not for everyone.

Wonderful effort from Vincent Gallow. The humor is painful but very statisfying.
