Buffalo '66

Buffalo '66 ★★★½

Dear Vincent Gallo,

I really wanted to hate your film Buffalo '66. I saw The Brown Bunny and wanted to personally hunt you down and slap you across the face for that horrible piece of shit you made me sit through. However, I have to admit you are a talented filmmaker and Buffalo '66 is pretty great.

I hated Cristina Ricci's performance, but that won't come as a surprise to you since you seem to hate it as well. Angelica Houston as your mother was one of the weirdest and most memorable characters I've ever seen. The cinematography is perfect and the world you created felt lived in and believable. Your performance is bewildering and haunting, even though you seem to be playing yourself: an unlikable prick. The ending was annoying at first, but after I thought about it for a while, it was very fitting. Well done.

Next time you make a film, maybe you should try to do something closer to this than The Brown Bunny, and you'll possibly be able to redeem yourself.

Sincerely,

Your biggest hater
