[Shadows is] so far ahead of all Hollywood and independent films that once you've seen [it] you can no longer look at the official cinema: you know that American cinema can be more sensitive and intelligent.
Again and again the line between acting and living is erased. Caught in the ecstasy of collective creation, a handful of earnest amateurs have almost accidentally produced a flawed but significant piece of folk art.
This is the only Cassavetes film made without a full script (it grew out of acting improvs), and rarely has so much warmth, delicacy, and raw feeling emerged so naturally and beautifully from performances in an American film.
A very modern, impressionistic snapshot of New York bohemia with scenes linked not by dramatic line but by place, time and mood.
Shadows is an unfinished picture in every sense of the word. Yet it is fitfully dynamic, endowed with a raw but vibrant strength, conveying an illusion of being a record of real people, and it is incontestably sincere.
Arguably the founding work of the American independent cinema.
An impressionistic whirl worth a thousand fumbled words
Cassavetes' startling debut piece.
In this experimental film, Cassavetes' approach and a cast of unknowns brought a new sense of realism to the American cinema.
It's Cassavetes's auspicious debut film as director.
The Beat generation espoused a rejection of mainstream American values, and John Cassavetes's Shadows feels like a relic from that movement.
a cinematic improvisation (as the end credits mention) of amateur vitality
Don't have much to say about this movie, seems others enjoyed it I did Not. 1 Star 3-2514
A new-waveish beatnik sociopolitical commentary that gets far less recognition than it deserves.
This is a pretty good, and very different, drama movie, but it's not all that exciting or intense. Plus, I wasn't familiar or impressed with any of the actors.
According to the information that can be found on the box, a very important and influential movie and Cassavetes directorial debut.
It's VERY difficult to rate this one objectively after seeing A Woman Under the Influence first, which is a completely different movie. Somehow the style reminded me a little of A Funeral Parade of Roses.
Couldn't keep my eyes off of Lelia Goldoni, she's beautiful.
