Cinestyle: Minnie and Moskowitz


Minnie and Moskowitz, what a gem of a neurotic love story. The unlikely paring of a hot-blooded parking lot attendant (Seymour Cassel) and an emotionally fragile museum curator (Gina Rowlands) make for drama in excess, awkward funny moments and a frank look at what love can be when you let your guard down. 

Oh, and crazy huge sunnies (which become something of a character themselves), sleek dresses, amazingly bad dates, iconic 70s Los Angeles (Pinks Hot Dogs, C.C. Brown's Ice Cream Parlor, LACMA), Minnie's killer apartment and Moskowitz's mustache really make this Cassavetes classic worth a watch.
