The disintegration of a marriage is dissected in this film shot in high contrast 16mm B&W. The film follows the futile attempts of captain of industry Richard (John Marley) and his wife, Maria (Lynn Carlin), to escape the anguish of their empty marriage in the arms of others. Featuring astonishingly powerful, nervy performances from Marley, Carlin, and Cassavete's regulars Gena Rowland's and Seymour Cassel, Faces confronts suburban alienation and the battle of the sexes with a brutal honesty and compassion rarely matched in cinema. The 2 DVD set includes new, restored, high definition digital transfer, 17 minute alternate opening sequence, TV episode about Cassavete's, documentaries, and essay by Stuart Klawan's.
