Abel Ferrara’s Mary — coming to America?


Remember Abel Ferrara’s Mary (2005), which stars Juliette Binoche as an actress who plays Mary Magdalene in a movie and then kind of loses herself in the part? The film has played in Europe, but not yet in North America; however, The Reeler says that might change soon, now that IFC Films has picked it up.

Jeffrey Wells says the eventual DVD release should include Rafi Pitts’s Not Guilty (2003), a documentary about Ferrara, as a bonus feature. Personally, I think it would be even more appropriate to package the film with Alex Grazioli’s Odyssey in Rome (2005), which chronicles the making of Mary.
