The Funeral

Scoring an untoppable five out of five on our video 1 page this fortnight, The . Funeral, by Abel Ferrara (King Of New York, Bad Lieutenant), is a brilliant 4 example of the cult director's deeply compelling style of filmmaking. A mob movie with a dark psychological underbelly, it I stars Christopher Walken (Things To Do In Denver I When You 're Dead, True Romance) and Chris Penn 1 (Reservoir Dogs) as two Mafioso brothers seeking revenge and personal peace of mind, 1 following their younger sibling’s violent murder. From blood-letting to blood-sucking, i Ferrara’s The Addiction is a vampire movie with a difference. Shot in black and white, it stars Lili Taylor (I Shot Andy Warhol) as a student struggling to correlatethe anti-Nazi doctrines of her college classes, with her own thirst for power over those she comes int contact with as a vampire. As you do.

We have ten pairs of videos to give away to the Barry Normans who can answer this:
