Plot

Billy Brown (Vincent Gallo) has been in jail, but his parents think that he's married and successful. When he can't find anywhere in Buffalo where he can pee, he runs desperately into a dance studio to use the washroom. He winds up kidnapping a dance student, Layla (Christina Ricci) to bring home and show off to his parents (Angelica Huston &, Ben Gazzara). The parents just barely remember their son or care about him, but Layla falls for him.
 

Comments

Buffalo '66 is an amazing and original film: well scripted, scored, cast, directed, and acted by Vincent Gallo. Buffalo '66 was really original in terms of both plot and style.At moments, the story of Billy Brown's life is so terribly tragic and bizarre, you almost have to break the tension by cracking a laugh. In the film, Vincent Gallo's ex-jail bird character, Billy Brown, kidnaps a young tap-dancer named Layla, played by Christina Ricci, to pose as his wife on his visit back home to his dysfunctional family.The colors are beautifully bold and somehow elegant by being so far past tacky.The film is really great. The story is actually based somewhat on Vincent Gallo's own traumatic life. The Sinatra song that the Billy Brown's father sings to Layla in the bedroom is actually a tape of Vincent Gallo's father, Vincent Gallo, Sr.I read in an interview that Vincent Gallo has scripted another movie he hopes to direct and feature in.He is trying to get enough money to do it all himself.I am curious to see how it turns out, since this film was allegedly wound so tightly around scraps of his own life.
