Film critic Stephen Schiff says that Cassavetes, who died this month at the age of 59, was just starting to live up to the promise of his jagged talent. The director's films were often indulgent and overwrought, but never without power.
He co-starred in the John Cassavetes films, Husbands, and A Woman Under the Influence. Falk is best known for his role as a rumpled L.A. detective in the TV series Columbo, where he garnered three Emmy awards. There's also a new DVD Columbo-The Complete First Season.
