The cinema of Abel Ferrara.
13 November 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Could This Be Love? (1973) was the third short that was directed by Abel Ferrara. This was filmed in color and he has access to a real actor and more motivated performers. Heavily influenced by the films of Paul Morrisey and Andy Warhol (but without the biting satire), COULD THIS BE LOVE is more of a bourgeois look at romance and life amongst the upper crust of society. But the very low production values and the uninspired acting of the only real actor in the script make this film a pedestrian effort. Mr. Ferrara used several cinematographers during the shooting of this short and it shows. To enjoy this short you have to watch it with the director's commentary.

Recommended to show how much Abel Ferrara progressed as a film maker. He also wasn't pleased with shooting about a subject he really doesn't care for. A 180 from what he would be doing a few years later.
