Willem Dafoe is an American artist living in Rome with his family, played by Abel Ferrara’s real-life wife and daughter. Their tumultuous relationship is set against his day to day life as a teacher, ex-pat, and recovering addict.

Our take

Abel Ferrara’s magisterial follow-up to Pasolini extends his collaboration with Willem Dafoe, here a livewire cipher for the director. One of Ferrara’s most personal films, this dark and shimmering work of disorientating autofiction explores the toll of making art while battling personal demons.
