The Cinema of Abel Ferrara: China Girl.
China Girl (1987) was an urban take on the classic Shakespeare play Romeo and Juliet (courtesy of Nicholas St. John). The film was directed by the gritty street level film maker Abel Ferrara. Instead of the Capulets and the Montaques, this version involves two crime families (the Italian Mafia and Chinese Triads). Not only is this film about true love but it’s about honor and old school loyalty. Instead of trying to follow the source material verbatim, Ferrara re-invents the classic tale.
I happen to be a big fan of Abel Ferrara. His style of film making is very unique and it’s greatly missed in Hollywood. We need more directors like him. Someone who not only can make a movie on the cheap but produce a well thought-out film that’ll force you to think and look outside the box.
