Buffalo '66

Buffalo '66 ★★★★★

Yes, yes, yes and yes. This movie is beyond words, I can't even fathom what I just watched. This movie is so good that it gave me both endings I wanted in one compact ending. The style, cinematography, acting, structure, surrealism are all god tier, there is not a single weak element. Layla is literally the perfect woman and Billy literally treats her like shit for a good chunk of the film. I was screaming at him until the bathroom scene and then I realised he's got a lot of baggage, no wonder he treats her this way. The hotel scenes with Layla and Billy just really emotionally compelled me and showed me that a bit of compassion and affection can really go a long way. Love and literally the perfect woman can turn a misogynist into a soft teddy bear. It doesn't excuse his behaviour but it makes you have hope for Billy after all. This might be my new favourite movie that's how gobsmacked I am right now.
