Thread: Welcome to New York (Abel Ferrara)

    The director's cut is pretty good, even though the DVD I got didn't have subtitles for the French dialogue. It's probably the most focused and disciplined movie Ferrara's made in a while, but I wouldn't call it one of his best. As a speculative account of the Strauss-Khan affair, it's pretty convincing, but it lacks the wild, all over the place of energy of some of Ferrara's better pictures (The Funeral, Mary). I'm reminded of a line from Ebert's review of Insignificance: "[The film] begins by imagining these [events], and ends by having created them."
    Just because...
    Devi (Satyajit Ray, 1960) mild
    The French Dispatch of the Liberty, Kansas Evening Sun (Wes Anderson, 2021) warm
    High Sierra (Raoul Walsh, 1941) mild

    The last book I read was...
    The Tenant of Wildfell Hall by Anne Brontė

    The (New) World
