5.0 out of 5 stars FUNNY AND ENTERTAINING INDIE FLICK----, December 30, 2009
This review is from: Buffalo '66 (DVD)
It wouldn't be like me to write this review without first mentioning Christina Ricci's buxom appearance in it. Apparently sometime at the beggining of the twentiots decade Christina Ricci underwent a breast reduction, and for a while looked to be much skinnier and frail then she used to be. Almost Calista Flockhartish (y'know the chicken lady from Brothers and Sisters and Ally McBeal) While Ricci has always been a hottie ever since her Wednsday Addams days and on into the future, there was no doubt that when this first was released, a fifteen year old Wally Gator was instantly drawn to her much fuller figure on the box cover for Buffalo '66. Hence me renting it initially and discovering this movie as an underated indie-classic.

I think this movie catches a lot of flack where it doesn't deserve. I can remember expecting a slow paced, dark sort of movie in this, overly serious as most indies go. What I got was a pretty fast paced, beautifully filmed, black comedy. Silly even at times and over the top- I think the entire film works and was pleasantly suprised. Vincent Gallos character as Billy is humorously over paranoid, overly obsessive and extremely manic... he's fun to watch. Ricci automatically becomes the soft spot in his mess of an existance and (as you may have guessed) is even more fun to watch. Rosana Arquette is in here too and of course the parents. Billys parents are more interested in the Buffalo Bills then anything else... even their son,,, which of course is the root of all his problems and the core of the plot. Hey- I liked this movie a lot, and still refer to it often. I don't think its meant to be taken too seriously. This may throw some people off but in my mind, is what makes it a good indie movie. I was entertained all around and recommend. Five stars.
