Captain Spank

Mine was in a dorm room off a digital rip from a VHS, but it was still pretty damn furtive.

Though no way "The Addiction" is more discomforting than this. I dunno if a distant remembrance is aggrandizing its impact for you... but it's pontificating and preening in ways antithetical to "Ms. 45." The big blood orgy at the end is like spying on a bunch of goth kids playing with themselves. Ferrara's 'punctum' is inversely proportional to how openly pretentious he's being, which puts "Ms. 45" near the top and puts "The Addiction" way down at the bottom, somewhere around "New Rose Hotel."

It's on DVD, btw. Just gotta import that shit.

'I first saw Abel Ferrara's Ms. 45 the way I suspect most men my age saw it: furtively, in my bedroom, on VHS.'

Close enough.
