Vincent Gallo - Buffallo '66

Vincent Gallo is one of my favourite people in the whole world, beautiful, haunting, perverted, talented, creative an absolute dream babe I would say.

Buffallo '66 was entirely created, directed and starred Vincent, along side Christina Ricci, Mickey Rourke, Rosanna Arquette, and Anjelica Huston. Gallo also performed most of the music to his semi autiobiographical debut.

Having just served five years in prison for a crime he did not commit, Billy Brown (Gallo)'s first desperate post-incarceration action is to search for somewhere to relieve himself. Oddly enough, the first thing he does is try to go back into the prison he was released from and is denied. Billy kidnaps a dance class student named Layla (Ricci) and forces her to pretend to be his wife. Layla allows herself to be kidnapped and it is clear she is romantically attracted to Billy from the start, but Billy all the while is compelled to deal with his own demons, his loneliness and his depression, and it is only at the end that he allows Layla to give him the love and comfort he has been needing all his life.

Gallo is crazy inspiration to me. He has also dated Cat Power's Chan Marshall who I love too.

If you haven't seen Buffallo 66 I highly recommended if you have I'd love to know what you think about it...
