...erotic lust devours the desired one like a vampire's kiss, reduces the body of the Other to something less than a 'human personality', and yet something more than an everyday lover.
— Adrian Martin
The slightest lack in the other's desire is developed to the point of catastrophe, opening a fissure in the couple's fusion and triggering a deluge of scenarios of death and abandonment into which the characters dive. Whether on the plane of morality (The Funeral) or emotion (The Blackout), Ferrara's characters cannot live if not in a state of amour fou.
