I saw The Addiction just last night, and what I've immediately thought was...wow...that' impressive! Talking about addiction, Ferrara actually talks about human beings. Addiction, that today in many ways affects all of us, is the symptom of human condition, the alarm of evil which is inside every man. The big metaphor of the difficulty to detox from an addiction puts into light the difficulty to avoid evil, we "suck" other people's blood, as kathlin does, to satisfy out thirst and our anger, to satisfy our selfishness and our incapability to glorify the human race. Kathlin is all of us, is the violent and wide primitive man and she is the man of today, self- concentrated on his own distinctive addiction, unable to loose himself from the original sin and human sin.
