What the hell happened to Abel Ferrara? Back in the 90's, he was easily one of my favorite directors but it has been almost 20 years since he has released anything remotely interesting. Anyway, I was still eager to check this movie since it was his directing debut but, to be honest, it wasn't really good, I'm afraid.

" Date: 2/3/2020 Viewed: Amazon Prime Re-Watch Note: I was in the mood to revisit this movie because I haven't seen it in the last 15+ years. This movie still holds up pretty well for the most part. I love the atmosphere that this movie has because the movie feels like a mixed between a gritty sleazy Grindhouse movie and hypnotizing artsy movie. Abel Ferrara does a great job as a struggling artist that slowly becomes a crazy madman. I also like the movie's social commentary on the punk wave th"

Anyway, I was still eager to check this movie since it was his directing debut but, to be honest, it wasn't really good, I'm afraid. In fact, it was pretty much the worst movie I have seen from this director so far (I also didn't like 'Body Snatchers' but I saw it decades ago and I should check it out again at some point).
