Thanks for this. I didn’t see this before I commented over on dakine01′s thread. I think Cassavetes was a great actor, but an even better film maker. I think that Faces and A Woman under the Influence are outstanding films. He focused so much on ideas and people, not explosions and chases. In my estimation, only Ingmar Bergman is a better film maker. You can compare A Woman under the Influence with Scenes from a Marriage that came out about the same time
Thanks for the reminder of Cassavetes and his work. Remember him so well. He was married to the wonderful Gena Rowlands who is always “delicious” in her roles. I miss those years. Miss them. Nobody has replaced him.
thx, greydogg, for reminding me of some great films. I never want to forget “a Woman Under the Influence”…. and perhaps new generations need to be exposed to this filmmaker’s timeless flicks.
This is very inspiring, as well:
