Buffalo '66 is a 1998 crime comedy-drama film that was writer-director Vincent Gallo's full-length motion picture debut. Gallo and Christina Ricci star in the lead roles and the supporting cast includes Mickey Rourke, Rosanna Arquette, Ben Gazzara and Anjelica Huston. Gallo also composed and performed much of the music for the film.

The film was generally well-received; Empire listed it as the 36th-greatest independent film ever made. It was filmed in and around Gallo's native Buffalo, New York, in winter. The film uses British progressive rock music in its soundtrack, notably King Crimson and Yes.

The title refers to the Buffalo Bills American football team, who had not won a championship since the 1965 American Football League Championship Game (which was actually played on December 28, 1965, four days before 1966 began). The plot involves indirect reference to the Bills' narrow loss in Super Bowl XXV, which was decided by a missed field goal.
