Part of BAMcinématek series Cassavetes
Directed by John Cassavetes

With Ben Gazzara, Timothy Carey, Seymour Cassel, Robert Phillips, Morgan Woodward

"…a post-noir masterpiece."
—Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader

Cosmo Vitelli (Gazzara) stages downbeat Dadaist nudie shows as the owner of an LA strip club, but he can’t seem to shake his gambling debts—and in an act of desperation, resorts to the titular crime. This “postnoir masterpiece” (Jonathan Rosenbaum) is a gangster film unlike any other. It simultaneously toys with the genre’s conventions and completely reinvents them—while also offering a dark, comic character study of Gazzara’s Cosmo: one of Cassavetes’ most complex and tragically human creations.
