SWIFF PRESENTS SWIFF 2018 RETRO: A WOMAN UNDER THE INFLUENCE

Receiving its long-overdue Blu-ray world premiere, A Woman Under the Influence is arguably John Cassavetes most popular and influential film. Released in 1974 it stars Cassavetes’ wife Gena Rowlands (Gloria, Faces) and the legendary Peter Falk (Columbo) as Mabel and Nick Longhetti, a blue-collar couple struggling to cope with her slide into mental illness. A key work from a golden era of American independent filmmaking this masterpiece is as powerful and devastating today as it was when it was first released. The film received two Oscar® nominations – Rowlands for Best Actress and Cassavetes for Best Director, losing out to Francis Ford Coppola for Godfather Pt II.

 

"Falk and Rowlands -- in performances of almost indescribable intensity -- detail a marriage anchored by love, but tossed by the expectations of others and the unpredictable swell of madness." --Keith Phipps, AV Club

 

"An astonishing, compulsive film, directed with a crackling energy."--Time Out
