With Valentine’s Day making its imposing presence known in February, we are celebrating, commiserating, ridiculing and generally contemplating all types of Love with our month long season.
‘YOU ADORE ME, YOU LOVE ME, YOU CHERISH ME, JESUS CHRIST YOU CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT ME’ - Billy Brown
Buffalo 66’ is the story of Billy Brown (Vincent Gallo) who has just been let out of prison. Desperate to prove to his parents that he has made something of his life, he kidnaps a tap dancer student named Layla (Christina Ricci) and forces her to play the part of his adoring young wife.
Buffalo’66 is Vincent Gallo’s full-length original directorial debut. When the film came out in 1998 it wasn’t a universally adored indie hit. Whatever the complaints, the director’s name was on everyone’s lips: Vincent Gallo. Here was a guy who could do it all: act, write, direct, paint, make music. Gallo is one of the best American art house filmmakers and acclaimed actor.
‘No one made any decisions on Buffalo 66, no one physically did anything unless it was my concept, my plan, my idea. That felt really good. Am I a filmmaker? No. A control freak and a hustler is what I really am.’ - Vincent Gallo, The Public 2015.
