A Sweet Taste of Revenge
Drafthouse Films recently plucked Ms. 45, a very dark and gory ’80s revenge tale, from falling completely into obscurity by re-releasing it in theaters and on DVD and Blu-ray with a brand-new, fully restored high definition gloss. We can certainly respect the film powerhouse’s effort to honor this underrated classic, but frankly, the dark story of a mute seamstress taking out bloody revenge on the seedy males of New York City loses a bit of its seediness in HD. Thankfully, the Texas Theatre has gotten its hands on an original 35-mm print of director Abel Ferrara’s thriller and is planning to screen the uncleaned film stock in a theater the way it was meant to be seen, at 9:15 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The Texas Theater is located at 231 W. Jefferson Blvd. Tickets are $10 with discounts for members. Visit thetexastheatre.com.
