The addiction by Abel Ferrara( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

A vampire film about the nature of addiction and original sin. A New York University doctoral candidate in philosophy becomes a vampiress. "Punctuating the action with glimpses of such atrocities as the Holocaust, the My Lai massacre and other historical mass slaughters, and loading up the dialogue with references to Nietzsche, Heidegger and other philosophers, filmmakers equate vampirism with the imposition of one's will on the human race. Raising this line of inquiry to another level is a fellow vampire (Christopher Walken) who is fond of quoting Beyond good and evil, and claims to Kathleen that, through the resolute exercise of will, he is able to control his 'addiction'--to fast and go without a blood fix for long periods of time"--Variety review, February 6, 1995
