"Yksinkertainen mutta vallankumouksellinen independent-elokuvan maihinnousu, joka vielä tänäkin päivänä tuntuu uudelta ja tuoreelta improvisoivien näyttelijöiden ja tylyn kuvaustyylinsä vuoksi."
View all Shadows (1959) reviews
John Cassavetes’s directorial debut revolves around a romance in New York City between Lelia (Lelia Goldoni), a light- skinned black woman, and Tony (Anthony Ray), a white man. The relationship is put in jeopardy when Tony meets Lelia’s darker-skinned jazz singer brother, Hugh (Hugh Hurd), and discovers that her racial heritage is not what he thought it was. Shot on location in Manhattan with a mostly nonprofessional cast and crew, Shadows is a penetrating work that is widely considered the forerunner of the American independent film movement.

" Notes: I have seen this movie but it was ages ago and, to be honest, I don’t remember much about it and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. Basically, even though John Cassavetes was fairly famous in the 70’s as an actor in fact, pretty much like Orson Welles, the guy actually took most of his acting jobs only to finance his directing efforts. Well, this movie was Cassavetes’s directing effort and, even though it has a decent reputation, it actually pretty obscure and definite"
