Back in the Times Square grindhouses of 1981 nobody ever could have guessed that Abel Ferrara’s “Ms. 45” would one day be exhibited alongside the Monets at the Museum of Fine Arts, but here we are.
The bad boy auteur’s symbolically fraught follow up to “The Driller Killer” screens tonight as part of the MFA’s “On The Fringe: American Cult Films of the 1980s,” which features a disreputable modern classic on the first Friday of every month for the rest of the year. This one’s a doozy.
