Very difficult version to find. Discs are in near mint to mint condition. The case has small cosmetic crack on the right side. This does not effect the case structure.

The Distinction Series is proud to present Shadows, Faces, A Woman Under the Influence, The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, and Opening Night in stunning new transfers. This set also contains the documentary A Constant Forge The Life and Art of John Cassavetes by Charles Kiselyak and two versions on Killing of a Chinese Bookie, the original 135 minute cut and a subsequent 108 minute re-edit.

In the grandiose realm of independent cinema, rhetoric and hyperbole can be rife but rarely does the filmic canon of the genres proponents measure up to the hype. John Cassavetes was an exception, justifiably earning the many titles afforded to him and forging a path for American independent cinema, which has spawned some of the contemporary greats. Frequently dubbed the actors director, Cassavetes films can be defined by a seemingly contradictory liberated fastidiousness, which allowed the visionary director to capture raw, beautiful emotion in its most organic form. His characters so perfectly flawed convey a humanity characterized by compassion, benevolence and warmth, selflessly presented with every human imperfection proudly on display. The resultant cinematic genius illustrates precisely why John Cassavetes has earned the title of the father of independent film.The five films included here represent his self financed works made outside the studio system of Hollywood, on which he was afforded complete control.
