Tommaso ★★★★

The latest in a long string of films - 9 Lives of a Wet Pussy, Dangerous Game, New Rose Hotel, 4:44 Last Day on Earth - in which Ferrara has put his real-life wife or girlfriend in a sex scene. I admire how Ferrara, like Jess Franco before him, has only become more prolific as his budgets have dried up, and has used these circumstances to blur the distinction between art and life. Very accurate in its depiction of the everyday challenges of domestic partnership. The scene where Dafoe gives the monologue in the AA is incredible - it's like Dafoe and Ferrara got in the machine from The Fly together. I respected the languid pace and the willingness to sit and observe the protagonist's daily life, even (or especially) the mundane parts.
