Old but an inspiring masterwork,
This review is from: Criterion Collection: Shadows [DVD]  [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Here in Amsterdam there is a series of films by John Cassavetes being shown at the Film Museum. however the oldest and first film he made was Shadows which has not beemn included in the event and so a DVD was a suitable alternative.
The film itself has been restored as much as possible and of course being in black and white and with smoking folk all over the place now seems rather out of date, a marvellous opportunity to see how Hollywood and all its clichés were turned on their heads by this amazing rebel and inspirator.
My order arrived promptly, well packed and was a delight to view.
