Some people probably really enjoy writing a review of their favorite film. I am not such a one. Am I too grumpy? Or, does it make me feel vulnerable, writing about something I love so much? Will my limited vocabulary be able to communicate the feelings I get when I watch this?
This is one of the first movies where I did my full screeching toucan laugh, surprising even myself. I can't handle it when Billy discovers that he has commandeered "a shifter car".
There are so many funny, beautiful, unexpected, weird, touching moments in Buffalo '66.
Layla tap-dancing in the bowling alley. Billy's telephone apology to Goon. The photobooth sequence. The blue period! The time lapse of Billy and Layla inching towards one another in the hotel bed. And of course, the cookie, the heart shaped cookie. Yeah. That's nice.
