Here's a short teaser of the sixth episode of the 2023 edition of Uncut Gems Marathons where we will - one by one - re-trace the directorial career of John Cassavetes. In this episode of our 2023 John Cassavetes Marathon, we are discussing The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, a film Cassavetes directed immediately after A Woman Under the Influence. Over the course of our conversation you will hear us talk about the many reasons the world (and some of us too) did not connect with the movie the way they did with his previous film, how it is a stylistic departure from his MO, how it functions as a metaphorically autobiographical piece and that its anti-genre allure is definitely not for everyone.
