John Cassavetes applied his freewheeling cinema to studio filmmaking with 1980's crime masterpiece, Gloria, starring the inimitable Gena Rowlands.
When a young boy's family is killed by the mob, their tough neighbor Gloria (Gena Rowlands) becomes his reluctant guardian. In possession of a book that the gangsters want, the pair go on the run all throughout New York.
Praised for its thrills and galvanizing star performance by Rowlands, Gloria finds Cassavetes as his pulpiest and loosest.
