CASSAVETES & SCORSESE: LOVE IS STRANGE
Double Feature!
FACES / MEAN STREETS
35 mm!

FACES
1968, Westchester Films, 130 min, USA, Dir: John Cassavetes

Both a sharp-eyed portrait of lives of quiet desperation and an excoriating look at the power games between men and women, FACES lays bare the raw nerves just below the surface of a relationship. John Marley and Lynn Carlin play a couple whose marriage explodes; as they try to drown their problems in drink and meaningless flings, Gena Rowlands and Seymour Cassel serve their respective purposes. Shot cinema verite style on 16mm stock, this revolutionary independent film earned Oscar nominations for Cassavetes, Carlin and Cassel.

MEAN STREETS
1973, Warner Brothers, 110 min, Dir: Martin Scorsese

Director Martin Scorsese’s shattering, insider’s look at small-time hoods in Little Italy stars Harvey Keitel as a guilt-obsessed Catholic trying to make good, and Robert De Niro as Keitel’s terminal screw-up of a cousin, Johnny Boy. Most of MEAN STREETS was shot - believe it or not - in Los Angeles (only exteriors were filmed in New York). It quickly became Scorsese’s calling card as a director, and a stunning prequel to the awesome TAXI DRIVER.
