Monday, Day 5, more miserable weather. Cold and Rainy. Ferrara's Siberia.

Two more silent Vidor shorts.  A French speaking African immigrant drama in Forum And Abel Ferrara's American Siberia, starring Willem Dafoe.

Abel Ferrara, 68, is an intensely independent minded American film director.

Based in his native New York he is definitely an "off Hollywood" filmmaker whose films are often highly provocative and controversial.  My personal favorite Ferrara opus is Bad Lieutenant, 1992, which starred Harvey Keitel as an egregiously degenerate New York City police officer. This was a film loaded with the kind of black humor that can have some grinning ear to ear and drive others to the exits.  Of late a frequent Ferrara protagonist has bern equally off beat American actor Willem Dafoe, who starred in Ferrara's Pasolini in 2014 which, because of certain unfirtunate artistic decisions, was a resounding flop.   I have not yet seen their latest collaboration, which IMDb describes as  "an exploration into the language of dreams" but am looking forward with a mixture of expectation and trepidation.  

Ps: Today was the day when serial rapist and all around pervert, mega producer Harvey Weinstein, was convicted of various sex crimes in New York City. One cannot help but wonder what a director like Abel Ferrara might do with the Weinstein casting couch saga material.
