The Films of Abel Ferrara

Ferrara's vision and perspective has amounted to the creation of a landscape of urban environments that feel like the creative core for directors like the Safdie Brothers. Known for his provocative, contentious, and moody tones, Ferrara is able to balance a range in his work that roams from gritty to poetic. Unapologetic in his delivery, themes, and imagery, Ferrara has garnered a cult following and has films that remain to always be dissected and picked at.
