THE CAR
1977, Universal, 98 min, USA, Dir: Elliott Silverstein

A wildly deranged shocker about a mysterious black car given to mowing down anyone in its path. It soon dawns on desert town sheriff James Brolin that the homicidal car has no driver and may, in fact, be a satanic entity! One of our favorite guilty pleasures from the 1970s. With John Marley, Ronny Cox and R.G. Armstrong.


FACES
1968, Westchester Films, 130 min, USA, Dir: John Cassavetes

Both a sharp-eyed portrait of lives of quiet desperation and an excoriating look at the power games between men and women, FACES lays bare the raw nerves just below the surface of a relationship. John Marley and Lynn Carlin play a couple whose marriage explodes; as they try to drown their problems in drink and meaningless flings, Gena Rowlands and Seymour Cassel serve their respective purposes. Shot cinema verite style on 16mm stock, this revolutionary independent film earned Oscar nominations for Cassavetes, Carlin and Cassel.
