John Cassavetes’s lacerating marital drama FACES is a brutal and compassionate portrait of a couple confronting the wreckage of their relationship. Bob Clark’s unjustly neglected horror gem DEATHDREAM explores the domestic ravages of the Vietnam War through the story of a couple who receive a shock when their son—who has supposedly died fighting overseas—suddenly returns home. What do these seemingly disparate films have in common? In both, powerhouse actors John Marley and Lynn Carlin play the husband and wife in question, bringing searing intensity and pathos to their harrowing portrayals of couples in crisis.
