Abel Ferrara Amerika Serikat, 1995

Francisco R.'s rating of the film The Addiction

The visuals evoke Tourneur and Lewton with a style so pure and suggestive it becomes a mesmerizing experience. St. John's screenplay struggles with some of the dialog but the acting and characterizations more than make up for it. Anabella Sciorra is fantastic as the sultry vampiress, and Lili owns the role. Walken's cameo is impressive as well. A fantastic, very sensual experience overall.
