Another powerhouse of a film from Cassavetes.

Yet again, seemingly much ahead of his time. This was made in 1974.

Cassavetes here studies the effects on mental instability on a family, one that Harmony Korine would study in his film Julien Donkey-Boy (interesting, as Korine states Cassavetes as an influence).
A subject which I am personally passionate about; mental health, the psycology of people, so this really hit home for me.

This is a hard watch at times, and may be too much for some people.

However, this deserves to be seen; this is the sort of film which can increase sympathy, understanding, and generally increase the empathy in a society.

Incredible again from Cassavetes.
