    Watch: Gérard Depardieu Embodies a Dominique Strauss-Kahn Lookalike in Trailer for Abel Ferrara's Latest

    No stranger to his own questionable scandals, actor Gérard Depardieu may perfectly embody the type of skeevy, predator-type French womanizer that comes to mind when one thinks of Dominique Strauss-Kahn. In 2011 IMF chief Strauss-Kahn was confined to house arrest after allegedly sexually assaulting a...

    Abel Ferrara Says David Lynch Is Done Making Films & Says Download His Movies If You Can't Find 'Em
