John Cassavetes was arguably one of the key American independent filmmakers and this box set, an overview of his most important movies, was long overdue...but well worth the wait. The "usual suspects" are present and correct from his bravura debut Shadows to the heart-wrenching Faces, the stunning A Woman under the Influence, the patchy Killing of a Chinese Bookie and the underrated Opening Night. Content-wise, this set includes pretty much what you'd expect it to and many of this movies (Faces in particular) are still exceptional to this day. The added bonus here though is the sheer wealth of extras - there are lots and lots of interviews both with Cassavetes and a number of his collaborators which give an interesting insight into his working methods. Not only that but the set itself is extremely attractive; the striking cover is rendered in a smooth, matt cardboard with each disk in its own matt, pastel-coloured sleeve. There's also a weighty booklet with much information about the man and his movies. In all this is an excellent introduction to one of cinema's true mavericks, attractively presented with some splendid extras.

For any viewers of real cinema, social reality, this is not to be missed. I have only watched the documentary as yet',constant forge, which is very interesting but as I have seen all the other films in the collection except the the unabridged version of 'the death of a Chinese bookie I am sure not to be disappointed.

Finally, the father of american independent film making gets a boxset! If you're a Cassavetes fan, this is obviously a must-buy item. The quintessential actor's director, these films all represent life in a fresh and honest way - typically through the performances Cassavetes gets out of his actors and his unque film technique/style. All great films if you are willing to engage with them fully. This is not for passive film-viewing!
