(1970, John Cassavetes) Cassavetes’ epic of male menopause, as he sends Peter Falk, Ben Gazzara and himself on a transcontinental bender. A search for lost youth moving from barroom to basketball court to gaming tables, to a series of sordid hotel room trysts – and back home again for the dreaded morning after. 4K DCP restoration. Approx. 138 min.
“Cassavetes is the sort of man who is dedicated to stripping people of their pretenses and laying bare their souls.”
– Pauline Kael
