Legendary director Abel Ferrara (Ms. 45, King of New York) directs this thinly veiled, fascinating dramatic exploration of the Dominique Strauss-Kahn sexual assault case, featuring Gerard Depardieu in a magnificent performance as corrupt businessman Devereaux, spiralling into a personal hell.
Consumed by a lust for power and sex, Deveraux is accused of assaulting a hotel cleaner and watches his world crumble around him. A grotesquely fascinating, often shockingly lyrical and moving study of corruption and sexual excess, Ferarra’s film is brash, shocking and often disarmingly funny.
