Shadows 1959
Shadows (1959)

Leila Gordon - Anthony Ray - Hugh Hurd

high definition restored - Criterion Collection

If John Cassavates was anything, he was courageous. Shadows was a bombshell of controversy for its time: a movie about an interracial couple in New York. Shadows is the directorial debut of John Cassavetes, beloved as the leader of the independent film movement. Substance over style: human interactions, relationships and all the complexities that go with it. His improvisational style and cinematic approach was a dynamic break from the old school studio system. He worked usually with the same collaborators for many movies, including his wife, Gena Rowlands and pals Seymour Cassel, Ben Gazzara and Peter Falk. And they did it on a shoe-string budget.

Shadows was well-received. Before his death in 1989, Cassavetes went on to make other great movies, including those that got Oscar nods for script-writing and acting. They include Faces (1968) A Woman Under the Influence (1974) and Husbands (1971). We also sell Husbands (1972) Faces (1968), Shadows (1959) and Killing of a Chinese Bookie (1976) here, in their collector's editions. Shadows is a Criterion Collection edition, in black and white, and with a lovingly restored high definition digital transfer superior to others. Its many features include video interviews with Lelia Gordon and producer Seymour Cassel, a rare silent 16 mm footage of a Cassavetes' acting workshop in 1961, a restoration demonstration (indy films require special care), theatrical trailer and a stills gallery that has behind-the-scenes production photos. For light shipping, the disk ship in protective sleeve, no art. Shipping in the U.S. is $4, and $8 to anywhere outside the US (due to consecutive rate increases by USPS.
