A truly immersive slice of experimental cinema. I don't remember ever sampling performances as genuinely captivating and realistic as John Marley, Gena Rowlands, and Lynn Carling were serving up here. I'd be the first to admit not always getting what Casavettes is trying to say with his films but the director totally nails this one.
View all Faces reviews
John Cassavetes puts a disintegrating marriage under the microscope in the searing Faces. Shot in high-contrast 16 mm black and white, the film follows the futile attempts of the captain of industry Richard (John Marley) and his wife, Maria (Lynn Carlin), to escape the anguish of their empty relationship in the arms of others. Featuring astonishingly nervy performances from Marley, Carlin, and Cassavetes regulars Gena Rowlands and Seymour Cassel, Faces confronts modern alienation and the battle of the sexes with a brutal honesty and compassion rarely matched in cinema.

Katselut 2016 / Jurger (27 movies items)

"24.7. Kaksi tuntia räkänaurua ja rikkaiden mulkkuäijien sikailua. Bileet loppuu aina kiusallisen paskasti ja kaikkia jurppii. Lopussa murskataan sieluja ja todetaan, että avioliittoinstituutio ei vaan toimi. Hieno elokuva."
