I watched Ms .45 last night for the first time, so it is kind of weird that it is mentioned so soon after. Abel Ferrara not only does not show nudity he also has a generally slimy/sleazy set of male characters, doing things that generally at the time (in film at least) were not looked down upon and he films it in a way to make it slimy/sleazy. It is not a film to watch if you want to feel great as a male. It was a really good film.

I just did my initial ballot and have a number of FYCs that haven’t been mentioned. Not sure of the best way to go about it without flooding the thread and posting my still incomplete ballot.
