Welcome To New York

Critics Consensus

[The] deliberate structure demonstrates Ferrara's artfulness, as does the lush imagery.

Apr 23, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

The film, a sleek and oddly moving study in the cost of debauchery, has its gleeful excesses.

Apr 23, 2015 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

This frank, unruly look at sex, privilege and power unfolds so much like real life that it proves an intriguing and strangely immersive experience.

In an Abel Ferrara movie, this sort of damaged, raging, unrepentant bull passes for an antihero.

Apr 9, 2015 | Rating: 3/4

The movie packs a singular, agonized vision that seems entirely the director's own.
