“Perhaps the greatest of Cassavetes' films.” - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“Has an emotional rhythm unlike anything else I've ever seen.” - David Kehr, Chicago Reader

Cassavetes’ landmark film is an uncompromising portrait of domestic turmoil and mental illness, starring Gena Rowlands and Peter Falk as a married couple deeply in love but unable to express themselves in terms the other can understand.
