Features and technical details

Zavvi - The Home of Pop CultureThe trailblazing independent auteur JOHN CASSAVETES (Opening Night) pushes his raw, uncompromising emotional realism to its limit in this unflinching portrait of masculinity in crisis. Cassavetes joins BEN GAZZARA (Anatomy of a Murder) and PETER FALK (Mikey and Nicky)—both of whom would become key collaborators of the director’s—playing a trio of middle-aged Long Island family men who, following the sudden death of their best friend, channel their grief into an epic, multiday bender that takes them from Manhattan to London in a desperate, debauched quest to feel alive. By turns painfully funny and woundingly perceptive, this self-described “comedy about life, death, and freedom” stands as perhaps the most fearless, harrowingly honest deconstruction of American manhood ever committed to film.Special Features:New 4K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack  Audio commentary from 2009 featuring critic Marshall Fine New interviews with producer Al Ruban and actor Jenny RunacreNew video essay featuring audio recordings of John Cassavetes in his own words exploring the actor director’s spirited approach to actingThe Story of “Husbands”—A Tribute to John Cassavetes (2009), a half-hour program featuring Ruban, actor Ben Gazzara, and cinematographer Victor J.
