Husbands review

Subtitled 'A Comedy About Life And Death', writer/director John Cassavetes’ male mid-life crisis drama was a resounding commercial/critical failure on original release in 1970.

Cassavetes himself, Ben Gazzara and Peter Falk play a trio of married New York commuters who, shocked by the death of a mutual friend, embark on a four-day wake-cum-binge that leads them across the Atlantic to London.

Digitally restored, it remains a gruelling and sometimes exasperating film, notable for its raw performances – as well as its avoidance of close-ups and point-of-view shots.
