Vincent Gallo's 1998 indie directorial debut hits Blu-ray in January.
In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate is preparing 'Buffalo '66' for Blu-ray on January 14.
C.I.A. Agent Billy Brown (Vincent Gallo) brings his wife home to meet his absurdly dysfunctional family. Only Billy's not really in the C.I.A., and his "wife," Layla (Christina Ricci), is actually a young tap dancer he just kidnapped to impress his ridiculous and unloving parents (Anjelica Huston, Ben Gazzara). In reality, Billy's whole life is an empty lie. He's fresh out of prison and now on a deadly mission to hunt down and kill the Buffalo Bills kicker whose botched field goal he believes ruined his life. However, Billy's new hostage may ruin everything. Their crazy attachment blossoms into a desperate and oddly beautiful romance that may or may not be a sweet enough substitute for revenge. Vincent Gallo composed and performed the original music and also wrote, directed and stars in the film that The New York Times calls, "...a deadpan original."
Specs and supplements have not been announced yet, but suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $14.99.
