Buffalo '66

Buffalo '66 ★★★★½

First watch. He’d kick my ass for saying it, but Gallo is hitting Always Sunny levels of gay repression in this film. The tub sequence is heart wrenching. 

I think Vincey made a pretty beautiful point about the power we give individual people in our memory. We tend to remember certain figures in our lives as something beyond human, as archetypes that are responsible for making us feel or act a certain way. Trying to satisfy the idea of your mother, the idea of the girl who was mean to you in middle school, the idea of former NFL kicker Scott Wood, will always be impossible.
