Napoli Napoli Napoli (Blu-ray)
Directed by Abel Ferrara
With his crooked face and rough demeanor Abel Ferrara looks and acts like he could have been born in Naples, Italy, the subject and location of his raw and “hyperreality” film Naples Naples Naples. Inspired by real events, this docudrama, narrated by the director, depicts a young woman metaphysically lost in the passionate and vibrant streets of Naples. Ferarra takes the viewer through the neighborhoods and parks of Naples while starkly showing the division between the classes. The undercurrent of characters associated with a women’s prison penetrate the narrative with a message of injustice and despair. though criticized by some for its harsh representation of the city, the outcome is a portrayal of a city that no one has yet figured out, and that so many love, but also criticize; a city that has much to discover, but can never be known well enough. Ferarra depicts Naples through the words of the excluded and marginalized, portraying the chaotic mosaic of the Neapolitan universe with lucidity and love, characteristics that only he knows how to express with such intensity and immediacy.
