Opening Night (Cassavetes, 1977)

A baffling film from John Cassavetes anchored by a strangely belligerent and human performance from Gena Rowlands playing an aging stage actress haunted by her own self defeating image of celebrity. This is Cassavetes at his most obscure and methodical. More to come on a second viewing.
