Maximum-impact Cassavetes. The director-star pushes his actors and cinematic techniques to the extreme in this account of three married suburban New York dads—Cassavetes and two of his standbys, Ben Gazzara and Peter Falk—who, after reuniting following a friend’s funeral, leave their wives and kids for a brutally masculine weekend of binge-drinking and roughhousing. The rowdiest of all the writer-director’s films, Husbands brilliantly blurs the line between reality and performance.
