Shadows by John Cassavetes( Visual )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The story of an interracial romance and the obstacles it puts on family relationships. When appearing on Jean Shepherd's radio program Night People, Cassevetes mentioned the improvisation work he had done with his acting class, and asked for funding to film it. When listeners actually sent in money, he worked up a script based on the classwork, and with additional funding filmed his story of three siblings, two of whom can pass as white
Faces by John Cassavetes( Visual )

7 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 582 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Cassavetes puts a disintegrating marriage under the microscope in the searing Faces. Shot in high-contrast 16 mm black and white, the film follows the futile attempts of the captain of industry Richard (John Marley) and his wife, Maria (Lynn Carlin), to escape the anguish of their empty relationship in the arms of others. Featuring astonishingly nervy performances from Marley, Carlin, and Cassavetes regulars Gena Rowlands and Seymour Cassel, Faces confronts modern alienation and the battle of the sexes with a brutal honesty and compassion rarely matched in cinema."--Publisher's description
Opening night by John Cassavetes( Visual )

22 editions published between 1977 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 535 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While in the midst of rehearsals for her latest play, Broadway actor Myrtle Gordon (Gena Rowlands) witnesses the accidental death of an adoring young fan, after which she begins to confront the chaos of her own life. Headlined by a virtuoso performance by Rowlands, John Cassavetes's Opening Night lays bare the drama of a performer who, at great personal cost, makes a part her own, and it functions as a metaphor for the director's singular, wrenched-from-the-heart creative method." -- Publisher's description
The killing of a Chinese bookie by John Cassavetes( Visual )

16 editions published between 1976 and 2004 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"John Cassavetes engages with film noir in his own inimitable style with The Killing of a Chinese Bookie. Ben Gazzara brilliantly portrays a gentleman's club owner, Cosmo Vitelli, desperately committed to maintaining a facade of suave gentility despite the seediness of his environment and his own unhealthy appetites. When he runs afoul of loan sharks, Cosmo must carry out a terrible crime or lose his way of life. Mesmerizing and idiosyncratic, the film is a provocative examination of masculine identity. It is presented here in two versions: Cassavetes's original 1976 edit and his 1978 one, nearly thirty minutes shorter." -- Publisher's description
A woman under the influence by John Cassavetes( Visual )

7 editions published between 1993 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This uncompromising portrait of domestic turmoil details the emotional breakdown of a suburban housewife and her family’s struggle to save her from herself. Gena Rowlands and Peter Falk give unforgettably harrowing performances as a married couple deeply in love but unable to express their ardor in terms the other can understand. This landmark American film is perhaps the most beloved work from the extraordinary John Cassavetes." -- Publisher's description
