First-time director Vincent Gallo stars in this self-consciously stylized story of a social misfit who's rescued from emotional annihilation by the girl he kidnaps.
Gallo, who also wrote, directed and scored Buffalo '66 , is a smart young filmmaker, not least in his casting.
The intimate, idiosyncratic and very funny Buffalo '66 --directed by and starring Vincent Gallo, from a semi-autobiographical script co-authored with Alison Bagnall --feels like a projection of Gallo's very psyche.
Performances are outstanding, particularly those of Gallo and Ricci. It`s so refreshing and invigorating to see a film like this.
For a study in untrammeled lunacy, the movie is a highly constructed and tightly controlled work.
Vincent Gallo, gaunt and pop-eyed, with a gaze of sexy, hostile paranoia, has the look of a born sociopath or a born movie star (or both).
Gallo's poor, poor pitiful me routine wears very thin, very fast, but Ricci is incandescent, a softly-glowing dumpling of a dream-girl in powder-blue fishnet tights and sparkly tap shoes.
Gallo's combination of crudeness and sophistication has a preternatural power.
Pic receives an incalculable boost from Ricci.
If Martin Scorsese, John Cassavetes, and Abel Ferrara took turns directing scenes of a film written by and starring Jerry Lewis, it might resemble Buffalo '66.
