Customer Review

on 10 May 2014
For me, the best Cassavetes outside of academical critics' choice forever citing "Shadows", "A Woman Under the
Influence" or "Faces"... and a fairly unknown one, very close to what he was playing himself in atmosphere, in his TV series of Jazz Detective : "Johnny Staccato" using a lot of the same cast. Stella Stevens, belying Cassavetes' love of stellar blondes in a smoky, party, Jazzy, Noir atmosphere, is absolutely gorgeous and this may be her best movies. The Bongo Beatin' Beatnik Jazz Music is the real star, however, using one of early Teen Rock'n'Roll's idols, Bobby Darin in a kinda counter-role in the opponing Adult Jazz scene.
The image is well digitalised. Only sore point is that there isn't any bonus to set the scene in a historical context : downtown New York Jazz clubs in the late Fifties... or adding to the mood with a shortie or what.
Reccomended for Cassavetes fans!
