If you are interested in how films are constructed and can come together as a process rather then a perceived finished product , then you need to watch this film . Filmaking at its raw best , amazing shots of New york , great story , totally current todays enviroment , a must watch.
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as much as possible and of course being in black and white and with smoking folk all over the place now seems rather out of date, a marvellous opportunity to see how Hollywood and all its clichés were turned on their heads by this amazing rebel and inspirator.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.
