Abel Ferrara, a director who specializes in film and TV violence and whose looks would scare babies, almost jumped out of his socks. For a second he looked scared, there in the darkness of one of this city's seedier alleyways. Ferrara had heard the sounds of a violent altercation, maybe somebody killing somebody else. "What the hell is going on here?" he yelled. The audio man on the location chuckled softly, then shouted back the answer: "I was just playing back the last scene you shot."
