Dir. Abel Ferrara (1992).
The best Scorsese film of the 90s was made by hardcore scuzzmeister Abel Ferraraa startling, powerfully restrained vision of sin and salvation in godless New York with Harvey Keitel in the title role giving the most uninhibited performance in the whole disco inferno. As sordid as the material is, the movie isnt oppressive.
