Faces is a film about the brutal collapse of a marriage, made by the American actor and director John Cassavetes - a pioneer of independent movies, whose films had a completely different approach from mainstream Hollywood. The scenes are often rough and rambling, aiming to approximate the way real life works. But does that actually get nearer to the truth - or in the end is it just a different style of film, as artificial in its way as any other? As well as being a powerful story in its own right, Faces is a fascinating example of the art of movie-making.
