No matter, without exactly transcending the awful material, Ferrara puts it across with astonishing poetry and conviction.

Scary, funny, magnificently risible, this could be the most pretentious B-movie ever -- and I mean that as a compliment.

Love him or hate him, Mr. Ferrara is one of the few directors who can turn genre movies into something deeper.

Unfortunately, it's so dark -- and impenetrable -- that it shuts us out.

Not to everyone's taste but certainly haunting in theme and visuals.

Macabre and provocative, yet wonderfully restrained.

The Addiction is less a blood-sucking story than a fable about modern enervation.
