The Driller Killer (1979) Movie Summary

  • DRAMA
  • HORROR
  • Unrated
  • 1979
  • FULL HD

In career that has encompassed such controversial classics as Ms. 45, Bad Lieutenant and Welcome to New York, none of Abel Ferrara’s films have quite managed to match the shock, extremity and downright notorious nature of The Driller Killer. Ferrara plays struggling artist Reno, a man pushed to the edge by the economic realities of New York living in the late seventies and the No Wave band practising in the apartment below. His grip on reality soon begins to slip and he takes to stalking the streets with his power tool in search of prey… One of the most infamous ‘video nasties’, in part thanks to its drill-in-head sleeve, The Driller Killer has lost none of its power to unnerve and is presented here fully uncut.

The Driller Killer Film Synopsis

An artist slowly goes insane while struggling to pay his bills, work on his paintings, and care for his two female roommates, which leads him taking to the streets of New York after dark and randomly killing derelicts with a power drill.

Deutsch
Dem Maler Reno Miller wachsen die Probleme über den Kopf: Geldnöte, Ärger mit seinem Händler, Pech in der Liebe und nicht zuletzt die Rock-Band, die direkt neben seinem Apartment bis spät in die Nacht laut herumschraddelt machen ihm zu schaffen. Die nervliche Belastung wird für Reno so stark, dass er den Verstand verliert. Um seinem Ärger Luft zu machen, schleicht er nachts durch die Straßen New Yorks und tötet wahllos Obdachlose mit einem Akku-Bohrer.

Ο ζωγράφος Ρένο Μίλερ ζει σε μια κακόφημη περιοχή της Νέας Υόρκης μαζί με την κοπέλα του και την ερωμένη της. Τα σοβαρά οικονομικά προβλήματα που αντιμετωπίζει και η αδυναμία να ολοκληρώσει το αριστούργημά του τον οδηγούν σταδιακά στην παράνοια. Όταν ένα πανκ συγκρότημα μετακομίζει στην πολυκατοικία του, ο Ρένο «ξεφεύγει» οριστικά κι αρχίζει να ξεπαστρεύει άστεγους μ' ένα ηλεκτρικό τρυπάνι. Κι αυτή είναι μόνο η αρχή του φονικού του ξεσπάσματος...

Welcome to New YorkDrama2015

A sex-addicted French financier, a fateful hotel room encounter, and a scandal that would rock the world: the mighty Gérard Depardieu gives a fearless performance in this ripped-from-the-headlines saga of sin and sleaze from boundary-pushing director Abel Ferrara (Bad Lieutenant, Ms. 45). Inspired by one of the most high-profile public implosions in recent memory, Welcome to New York follows a prominent international banker (Depardieu) as he spirals out of control during a drug and sex-fueled trip to America—culminating in a shocking incident involving a hotel maid and his subsequent arrest. Jacqueline Bisset co-stars in this provocative portrait of a man whose fall from grace sent shockwaves throughout the world.

In a large apartment high above the city lives our couple. They’re in love. She’s a painter, he’s a successful actor. Just a normal afternoon - except that this isn’t a normal afternoon, for them or anyone else. Because tomorrow, at 4:44 am, give or take a few seconds, the world will come to an end far more rapidly than even the worst doomsayer could have imagined. The final meltdown will come, not without warnings, but with no means of escape. There will be no survivors. As always, there are those who, as their final cigarette is being lit and the blindfold tightened, will still hope against hope for some kind of reprieve. For a miracle. Not our two lovers. They - like the majority of the Earth’s population - have accepted their fate; the world is going to end.

But this time, amidst his violent crusade, he also wants to use part of his drug-trade money to do good -- by donating it to a local hospital for the poor. The stellar supporting cast includes Wesley Snipes, David Caruso and Laurence Fishburne.

Pasolini summary, synopsis, reviews
PasoliniDrama2019

The Roman life and the imaginary worlds of Pier Paolo Pasolini intermingle in Abel Ferrara’s retelling of the final days in the life of the fifty-year-old filmmaker and writer, in a lovely, haunting film that draws on his last interview and envisages scenes from an unmade final film and his incomplete novel, Petrolio. Willem Dafoe, regally exhausted, is the spitting image of the murdered director, and Pasolini’s beloved muse Ninetto Davoli returns to “finish” his friend’s work, but Ferrara wisely never attempts to merely ape Pasolini’s style, instead offering one iconoclastic artist’s tribute to another, a biopic that busts the boundaries of the form and a passion project decades in the imagining that gives Pasolini’s final moments on the beach at Ostia the terrible sanctity of the Passion.
