Ferrara Back in the Streets

Mulberry St. (2010)

*** (out of 4)

If you're a fan of Abel Ferrara then you're bound to enjoy this documentary, which has the Bronx-born filmmaker returning to Mulberry Street. If you're familiar with his early films then you're well aware that this is the street that many of them were shot so Ferrara returns there as a form of a love letter.

MULBERRY ST. is a rather interesting documentary, one of three that the filmmaker made during the later part of his career. This one here really seems like a love letter to a street that he obviously cares for very deeply. Along the way we get to see some professional actors (Matthew Modine, Danny Aiello) as well as a group of friends that the director has been sharing beers with for decades.

There's obviously nothing ground-breaking about this film but at the same time it's pretty cool to see the New York filmmaker basically hanging out with friends and sharing various thoughts about his films and a variety of other subjects. This here will certainly appeal to those familiar with the actual street as well as those interested in the filmmaker.
