    A Woman Under the Influence

    Why did I watch this first thing in the morning? Now I have to get through the rest of the day.

    Gena Rowlands is brilliant and devastating in this.

    Cassavetes unconventional style is at it’s best here (from what I’ve seen so far) and the way it handles it’s characters and their interactions is truly unique and great.
