In one of his most infamous and explosive works, maverick filmmaker Abel Ferrara once again returns to the crime filled urban streets of his home city with, 'King of New York'.
After years inside prison, notorious drug lord Frank White is returning to the streets of New York City. When Frank and his crew brutally start to take back control of the city, the cops become determined to take him down, as does the criminal competition that won’t succumb to his will.
Once again working to his stylistic strengths, Ferrara crafts a portrait of the city that feels tangible and tactile. Submerged within the city's shadows and nocturnal lights, the characters themselves become engulfed with the environment around them.
