Elia Kazan's most personal film is a strange film.The film is the type of film by a master who after near 2 decades of success in film both commercial and critical got to make.The film looks and feels like nothing Kazan had done before.The film has more in common with the films of Bergman, Antonioni, Da Sicca and John Cassavetes in terms of mood and episodic fragments.I still don't know what happened and need to watch it again but this film is the type of so called "epic film" that shows that design and big vistas are not needed when the story, the plot and characters are so interesting.Haskell Wexler's photography is amazing the deep blacks and whites are beautiful and the shadows on the faces can bring one to tears.
