Vincent Gallo and Christina Ricci shine in this independent classic of the 90s, in which a just released ex-convict kidnaps a dour tap-dancer in order to disguise her as his new bride, and introduce her to his difficult parents.
“A distinctive, thrillingly idiosyncratic piece of filmmaking, balancing a strong evocation of blue-collar life with formal experimentation and inspired, dreamlike flights of fancy.” – Scott Tobias, AV Club
“In a film populated by the hapless dregs of society, there are no star turns, and yet every character is cleverly portrayed, fully fleshed out and functional, and frequently downright creepy.” – Marc Savlov, The Austin Chronicle
“The tale of a recently released prisoner who kidnaps a young girl and passes her off as his wife, Vincent Gallo’s 1998 film BUFFALO ’66 is still regarded as one of the greatest independent films ever made.” – Ryan Buxton, Huffington Post
“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.” – Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post
