Directed by Abel Ferrara (USA, 1992, 98 min.). 35mm.
Abel Ferrara and Zoë Lund—who had worked together on Ms. 45 (1981) as director and star, respectively—teamed up again to create this gripping noir about a corrupt cop. (Ferrara directs while Lund penned the script.) Harvey Keitel plays the unnamed lieutenant, who exploits his authority to abuse drugs, pressure young girls into sex, and embezzle money to pay off his gambling debts. His troubles come to a head when a mob lackey delivers an ultimatum: pay off his debt, or else. When the lieutenant learns that a $50,000 reward is being offered to the person who catches a pair of thugs who raped a nun (Frankie Thorn), he jumps at the opportunity to redeem himself.
