John Cassavetes United States, 1968

Randy Walker's rating of the film Faces

Wear your emotions on your sleeve or cover them up in suits and college-boy theatrics. Whatever it takes to appear confident, funny, in control. Never mind the fact that you don't know what you're doing, what you're saying or where you're going. But that's true for all of us. Never has a movie so perfectly demonstrated the elegant humanity that arises from the struggle between balls and vulnerabilities.
