Feeling the City: Abel Ferrara's "Fear City"

25 June 2016 1:07 AM, PDT | MUBI | See recent MUBI news »

Abel Ferrara's Fear City (1984) is playing on Mubi June 19 - July 18, 2016 in the United States.Abel Ferrara’s first feature film, 9 Lives of a Wet Pussy, which I have not seen, was a late-70s porno made three years before his cult hit The Driller Killer. Paired with the director’s politics, his debut is likely an orgy of contradictions: rugged but titillating, primal and intellectual, feminist yet exploitive of women’s bodies. Ferrara’s most profound work isn’t political in any usual sense. His films don’t have a message or agenda, and if any other filmmaker were to make them, they would be mute or problematic—shocking sex and violence without significance or pathos. He has a unique way with images and cuts, creating meaning through feeling, and not the other way around.  He often works within the confines of genre and exploitation films, but never feels imprisoned. »
