Welcome to New York. 2014. USA/France. Directed by Abel Ferrara. DCP. 127 min.
Ferrara drops Gerard Depardieu’s sex-addicted French politician into three distinctly New York environments: a sex party at an upscale hotel, central booking after an arrest at JFK, and confinement in a luxury townhouse surrounded by the paparazzi. Depardieu’s forceful, brutish presence dominates the film.
