Vincent Gallo (US, 1998, 110 min.)
Billy (Vincent Gallo) returns to Buffalo after five years in prison to track down and kill the Buffalo Bills placekicker whose Super Bowl gaffe made Billy lose a $10,000 bet he couldn't cover and subsequently head to jail to repay his bookie. He meets Layla (Christina Ricci) on his way home and kidnaps her, forcing her to play his wife when he returns home to his parents, unforgettably played by Anjelica Huston and Ben Gazzara.
In one of the least pleasant but most entertaining cinematic appearances of a photobooth, Billy takes Layla into a color booth at the bowling alley where they've been bowling. We see the entire three-minute scene from inside the photobooth, the frame cropped so we can see what the final photo might look like. One of the shots from this sequence was eventually used for the poster to the film and the packaging for the video and dvd versions of the film, as well.
Billy tells Layla he wants to simply take some photos of the two of them for his parents, nothing fancy, nothing special. Layla makes the typical photobooth funny faces and rabbit ears in their first attempt, and Billy yells at her for not being serious enough. On the second attempt, she's doing well until she kisses him on the fourth photo. Billy switches the background to blue to do the photos over again, and he finally gets a set he's satisfied with. Off to Denny's.
