A perfect companion piece to A Woman Under The Influence,

This review is from: Opening Night (The John Cassavetes Collection) (DVD & Blu-ray)  (DVD)
If you are a Gena Rowlands aficionado like me, you will love this movie. It's pure Gena; everyone else just sort of languishes in the background, unable to outshine Gena's radiant presence. Unlike A Woman Under The Influence (AWUTI), this movie has a humourous side to it, although often in a tragic way. The movie comes from Cassavetes' golden age (mid to late 1970s), when he could do no wrong in my eyes, although that didn't stop the movie flopping when it was released. I actually prefer this movie over AWUTI.
I'm docking it one star because the transfer is not perfect. Colour and detail are good, but there is a little bit of damage (specks, splotches, lines) every now and again. These problems could have been fixed. If you have a small TV you won't notice these problems. I'm only pointing them out because I have a projector, which tends to magnify visual problems.
