One of the first films in a while (the other being You Were Never Really Here) that lingered in my mind through to the next day (as I'm writing it here on my break at work...) Rowlands and Falk are so complex and layered in their performances, and I love the grey area between what is improvised and what is written/directed/planned. Great, great film. Flying straight to the top of my Best of the 1970s list.
A very emotional experience. A biting work of art that rails against the oppression women face by men, the family, & society as well as how men repeat cycles of oppression even when they think they're trying to stop it. Rowlands & Falk are acting legends. Cassavettes, one of the realest auteurs of cinema. Authentic to the bone. One of the best of the 70s & ever. A milestone in independent film. Saw it at MOMA on film
