Amos Kollek – Fiona (1998)


Fiona is a crack-smoking prostitute. She lives a reckless life outside the law where she kills three cops with the same nonchalance with which she turns tricks… Gritty and unsparing, the film blends an original screenplay with actual documentary footage shot in a Lower East Side crack-house with prostitutes playing some of the key roles. The tender relationship between these women is felt without descending into voyeurism or pity and depicted with an authenticity that transcends the line between fiction and documentary.
