Faces (1968) 2 x DVD9 Criterion Collection
Richard Forst (John Marley, The Godfather) and Maria Forst (Lynn Carlin, The Ballad of Cable Hogue) are a married couple. Things aren't going too well for them at the moment. Their marriage is falling apart, and each is attempting to find a way to keep their own life together. Richard finds comfort in the arms of a friendly prostitute named Jeannie (Gena Rowlands, Playing by Heart). Maria starts hanging out with a lusty, youthful hippie named Chet (Seymour Cassel, Rushmore). Drinking, drugs, sex, laughter, and fits of broken rage ensue. All the while, director John Cassavetes keeps his camera focused mercilessly on the faces of each and every one of these wounded adults.
