The addiction by Abel Ferrara( visu )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
A vampire film about the nature of addiction and original sin. A New York University doctoral candidate in philosophy becomes a vampiress. "Punctuating the action with glimpses of such atrocities as the Holocaust, the My Lai massacre and other historical mass slaughters, and loading up the dialogue with references to Nietzsche, Heidegger and other philosophers, filmmakers equate vampirism with the imposition of one's will on the human race. Raising this line of inquiry to another level is a fellow vampire (Christopher Walken) who is fond of quoting Beyond good and evil, and claims to Kathleen that, through the resolute exercise of will, he is able to control his 'addiction'--to fast and go without a blood fix for long periods of time"--Variety review, February 6, 1995
Tennessee River cafe: a short story collection by Beth Curtis( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In the Tennessee River Cafe, Miss Edna and Miss Sally, two maiden sisters, have been serving up breakfast and lunch for the past thirty-five years, is the touchstone of the stories and a common denominator for a widely diverse social order. The stories unfold in sequence, revealing the cast of characters, much as chapters in a novel, as they move in and out of the town landmarks—the cafe and bank, the hotel, grocery store, sheriff’s office, lawyer’s office—in this established and static community. But outside this constricted and public sphere, where one is always on display, exists a personal and sometimes secret world
The funeral by Abel Ferrara( visu )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
"Centers on the family lives and personal relationships of three racketeering brothers: Ray, the oldest; middle son Chez, the most volatile; and Johnny, the most overtly political. ... Pic begins with the placement of Johnny's coffin in Ray's living room, surrounded by huge bouquets of flowers from both desirable and undesirable members of the community. In a labyrinthine narrative, basd on lengthy flashbacks, Ferrara and writer Nicholas St. John unfold the multigenerational saga of the Tempios, an Italian-American family torn apart by a tradition of violence. Though close to one another, the three brothers are very different in their personalities, politics and approach to life. The strongest, most rational--and most coolly cruel--of the three, Ray contrasts sharply with both the temperamental, violence-prone Chez and the charming Johnny, who's committed to leftist politics. The women in their lives are also vastly different. Ray is married to Jeanette, a bright, educated woman unafraid to express her opinions even when they diverge from hubby's. Chez's spouse, Clara, is quietly sensitive and long-suffering, and handsome Johnny is engaged to the shy and beautiful Helen. Dramatically pic revolves around the mystery of who shot Johnny and his brothers' almost animalistic determination to avenge his death"--Variety review by Emanuel Levy, September 9, 1996
