Three years after its completion, Abel Ferrara's Mary is finally getting a very limited release this weekend.
Ferrara is one of my favorite directors. He takes the ugly and molds it into passionate & personal filmmaking. He gives "nasty art" a purpose, unlike so many of the current boho nihilists.
Even in the days of Driller Killer Ferrara seemed to be on the edge of death, yet twenty-nine years later he's surviving.
Not just in art, but in education, spirit, and philosophy, Abel Ferrara is a true independent.
I love people like him.
