Oh! The Golden Globes people (partly) financed this restoration? Well, then I don’t know why people are so upset with them!

Anyway.

I got this Cassavetes box set, and this is the remaining movie from that set. It’s Cassaveteses (that’s a word) first film?

Yes.

Oh, this is very Nouvelle Vague.

But it’s not Godard — it’s not all thought out and stuff. It’s… it’s not that accomplished? I mean, I like it, but it’s just got these technical problems (with lighting, mainly, and, well the actors not being French, which is very technical indeed) that seem to make it totter on the verge of being an American B movie instead of an art movie.

Shadows. John Cassavetes. 1958.
