At first glance, the Criterion Collection's massive eight-disc encasement of five John Cassavetes movies may look like a hodgepodge of the late director's work. Why include The Killing of a Chinese Bookie but not Minnie and Moskowitz or Gloria? Is there some order here, or is this what could get licensed? Isn't $124.95 a bit steep? Turns out that the movies contained herein--Shadows, Faces, A Woman Under the Influence, Chinese Bookie, and Opening Night--represent those titles over which Cassavetes had complete artistic control.
