Willem Dafoe Weekend
Italy, United States | 2007 | Abel Ferrara
Willem Dafoe, Bob Hoskins, Matthew Modine, and Asia Argento star in this unreleased-in-America Abel Ferrara comedy inspired by John Cassavetes' The Killing of a Chinese Bookie. The movie is set in a struggling topless club in downtown Manhattan, where the financially-strapped owner fights with his brother, and the dancers threaten a "strip strike." "A sincere and inspired meditation on art and creation, but in a loose, funny key." -The NY Times.
96 min. 35mm. Cleveland premiere.
Special thanks to Abel Ferrara.
