Darum geht's

Schatten (Shadows) atmet den Geruch der New Yorker Straßen wie kein Film vor ihm. Dieser Auftakt der Regiekarriere des Schauspielers John Cassavetes ist genauso atmosphärisch wie politisch und die Initialzündung für eine Erneuerung des amerikanischen Kinos.

Schatten Regie John Cassavetes
Shadows may be all ‘about’ race and racism, but its originality lies in the unresolved complexity with which Cassavetes treats those perennial subjects.

Jubilant energy feeds the film and finds a correlation in the movie’s grainy starkness, its disjointed dialogue, jumpy editing, occasionally incongruous mise-en-scene, and its aggressive shifts in focus and lighting. Unaffected performances by Ben Carruthers, Lelia Goldoni, and Hugh Hurd… are aided by Cassavetes’ penchant for long takes; when a scene went wrong, he would start at the beginning in order to give the actors room to settle in and resume the characters to their fullest realisation.

The fringes of the fringes, John Cassavetes’ turf, an impressionistic whirl worth a thousand fumbled words… A highly variegated snapshot of diner booths, sidewalks, studios and terminals, a sustained rediscovery of the face in close-up, volatile and vulnerable. The drama and the comedy spring from “a problem with the races, that’s all” (cf. Daves’ Kings Go Forth), the hippest spot in town is not immune to a prejudice that can terminate a romance with a single glance.
