The Late Show: New Digital Restoration!
Brattle Passes Accepted
(1981) dir Abel Ferrara w/Zoë Lund [80 min; DCP]
Abel Ferrara’s (Bad Lieutenant, King Of New York) 1981 revenge thriller classic MS. 45 follows a mute garment-district seamstress – played by the late model/actress/musician/screenwriter Zoë Lund – who, after falling victim to multiple unspeakable assaults, ignites a one-woman homicidal rampage against New York City’s entire male population. Now remastered in high definition from the original negative materials, MS. 45 remains a stylish, transgressive, and lurid, depiction of the Big Bad Apple and the unhinged humanity who inhabit it.
“She’s number one… with a bullet.”
