Faces

John Cassavetes / US, 1968 / 130 min.

Cassevetes’ first film starring his wife Gena Rowlands is a candid portrayal of the American middle class; a painfully honest study of a disintegrating marriage and the spiritual vacuum of the ‘American way of life’.

poster Faces (John Cassavetes, US 1968)
Cassavetes focuses in on the disintegrating marriage of two average, middle-aged, well-heeled, middle class Americans. Richard Forst (John Marley) and Jeanie Rapp (Gena Rowlands) tired of one another long ago, but just can’t let one another go – with tumultuous consequences.
