Trivia

The "bare" shot on the busy bridge connecting the United States and Canada went off without a glitch until traffic was released a bit too soon in one direction. Folks inside approximately 15 cars got something more than a sneak peek while entering the United States. See more »

Every time I think the low budget independent drama is dead, I stumble across a little gem of a film that changes my mind and gives me hope. "Buffalo Bushido" is just that. Quirky yet specific. Honest yet surreal. Myopic yet projecting in its meaning. Through nuance, familiarity and performance, McGennis taps into his hometown with acute specificity and keeps you hanging on until the end. His use of layering is absolutely brilliant and shows a degree of thought and level of depth missing in Hollywood today. McGennis and Leila Arcieri deliver some very powerful moments as they slowly break down in their struggle to connect. All of the cast deliver fresh, surprising performances and McGennis especially shows skill linking certain characters to his own. "Buffalo Bushido" is a thinking person's film that takes its time to develop and take hold. It's oddities make it very hard to forget and suggest that we are witnessing an emerging new talent with creative vision and the unique ability to pull off all four major capacities (writing, directing, producing and acting) with voice and style. Like most unheralded early works, "Buffalo Bushido" will likely fly under the radar screen and be most appreciated down the road until McGennis achieves greater commercial success. Check it out. "Buffalo Bushido" is a tremendous accomplishment especially for anyone who dreams about making a film or who knows of everything that goes into making a real independent feature film.
