Here’s a short teaser of the second episode of the 2023 edition of Uncut Gems Marathons where we will – one by one – re-trace the directorial career of John Cassavetes. In this episode of our 2023 John Cassavetes marathon, we continue our odyssey through the work of this maverick director by talking about his sophomore feature Too Late Blues. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about Cassavetes going to Hollywood, the idea of trying to bring freshness into the stale studio filmmaking, the vagaries of dealing with producers, the movie as an autobiographical confessional, Cassavetes learning visual direction and the crisis of masculinity.
Tune in and enjoy!
