Shadows

Shadows

A mostly improvised slice of life on the streets on New York, Cassavetes’ opening shot as a director is a cornerstone of the American independent movie scene. With a jazz score and its Beat themes of alienation and unrepressed emotion, not to mention an interracial relationship, Cassavetes stripped modern America society to the bone.
