Cassavetes turns his hand to a backstage drama about an ageing actress at a crisis point in her career. It boldly parallels Rowlands' real-life position in the industry with her onstage/onscreen character. The film is hysterical, overlong and yet as profound a portrait of an actress on the edge of breakdown as you will find outside of Bergman's 'The Face'.
