    Ferrara’s previous work has demonstrated a similar preoccupation with performance, as Brad Stevens examines in his book Abel Ferrara: The Moral Vision, in particular in his analysis of Snake Eyes 13 At the centre of the recent documentaries is the performance of the director himself, the same Ferrara whose public image as a deranged “master Author: Tim O’Farrell.   Abel Ferrara has come not to bury Pier Paolo Pasolini — writer, critic, activist, provocateur, communist, hedonist, out-and-proud homosexual and, last but not least, filmmaker — Author: David Fear.

      Christopher Walken is out of prison and back on the dirty streets of New York as convicted drug lord Frank White in a pitch black 90s crime .   Let’s file Abel Ferrara in the latter camp – at least for now, until the wheels come off. The American director defies good taste, defies good sense, and flirts with disaster on a regular : Xan Brooks.

    This was a spectacular film with a very good performance by Willem Dafoe playing a man who has no fear in taking bold risks, just like his feature and Ferrara. Abel Ferrara doesn’t capture the whole life of Pasolini but only the latter fraction of it and I couldn’t have found a way to do it in any other way. Ferrara is the GOAT once again 9//5(K).
