June 23, 2002
A love song to director-star Vincent Gallo by screenwriter Vincent Gallo (orchestrated, coincidentally, to the strains of music by Vincent Gallo)...
April 12, 2002
By turns raw, naturalistic and indebted to John Cassavetes.

Without this emotional edge, Buffalo '66 ends up like the hard-luck football team at its center: it just misses.
February 14, 2001
Alternately satirical and romantic, full of pain and humor, Buffalo '66 is a winner.
January 1, 2000
Cool, stark compositions and the occasional audacious visual trick give Buffalo '66 a memorable look even when its narrative enters the occasional uneventful stretch.
January 1, 2000
Weird and darkly comic.

Vincent Gallo has proved himself a good actor in many films -- in Arizona Dream, The Funeral, and several Claire Denis movies. But the first feature in which he functions as director, cowriter, composer, and star is a pathological curiosity.

January 1, 2000
Vincent Gallo's Buffalo '66 plays like a collision between a lot of half-baked visual ideas and a deep and urgent need. That makes it interesting.

January 1, 2000
Gallo is talented and energetic, with an ability to estheticize bleakness. But, succumbing to overindulgence, he shortchanges his film of the most interesting thing in it.
January 1, 2000
The comedic edge to the story works well, though at times the film seems too arty.

January 1, 2000
Vincent Gallo's ego gets the better of his storytelling in his acting-directing-writing debut, but there are flashes of genuis that make it worth watching.

A meandering mess that almost comes together at the end.

January 1, 2000
Highly original and distinctive.
January 1, 2000
Buffalo 66 features a few scenes that might have come out of a film school student's imagination, but compels attention by the sheer chutzpa of its telling.

January 1, 2000
Gallo packs the film with odd, endearing flourishes that detract a bit from the storyline but add to the overall whole.

January 1, 2000
Buffalo '66 has an authentic rotgut flavor, but here's the question for the future: Will Gallo learn to criticize his own ideas or continue to pride himself on screwing up?
January 1, 2000
[An] eccentric little road movie that never really leaves home.
January 1, 2000
Buffalo '66 may be a mess, but often enough it's a beautiful mess.
January 1, 2000
Clearly, Gallo's film is a very personal one, and I sincerely hope that Buffalo '66 is not his only shot. For me, this is the film discovery of the season.
