Movie Diary 4/1/2015

Welcome to New York (Abel Ferrara, 2014). Ferrara disowns this cut of his film, so we’ll keep that in mind. Still, there are a number of strange elements to the picture, including the evidently improvised dialogue in many scenes (the main character, a piggy Dominique Strauss-Kahn type, gets a voiceover monologue late in the game that – its “To Be or Not to Be” value aside – is a relief for actually sounding as though it’s been written). In other news: Gerard Depardieu is still totally fearless. (full review 4/3)
