Abel Ferrara United States, 1990

Jake Cole's rating of the film King of New York

A literal vision of the drug war, where moral codes have long ago gnarled and atrophied and all that is left is dance, blood, coke and piss. The title is misleading, though; the biggest ambition anyone has in this film is to take someone else down before they fall.
