Kritiker-Rezensionen

Above all, Rowlands—an experienced actress who’d never had an apt showcase for her astonishingly original artistry—created, in Cassavetes’s film and in communion with his sensibility, a new kind of movie acting, both extravagantly theatrical and ferociously opaque, impulsively strong and agonizingly vulnerable, that’s perfectly matched by the agile and playful yet granitic, virtually Beckett-like image repertory that the director developed.

A provocative, uncomfortably intimate examination of middle age malaise and its concurrent communication breakdown… Faces is Cassavetes at peak emotional rawness. With jagged cutting and wildly capricious shot selection, a profound familiarity is forged by the probing titular close-ups of the characters at their most animated.

I would like to recommend Faces without restructuring the reader’s aesthetic expectations, but I know by now that I can’t escape the consequences of my criticism. Faces, if seen at all, should be seen with a degree of tolerance for its rough edges and raw nerve endings.
