Just potboilers for Cassavetes!
2 November 2004 | by See all my reviews

The only reason to watch this is John Cassavetes.But not only the screenplay is almost devoid of interest but you should also know that half of the movie is Cassavetesless.When he's in jail,he's content to take a back seat and let his pals do the job and the audience is frustrated.Some often say that Cassavetes 's acting in other people's movie was just a job that paid the rent:not true because this very year 1968 saw Cassavetes going to a peak of his actor's career with his unforgettable Guy Woodhouse in "Rosemary's baby"."Roma come Chicago" (check the title) desperately tries to make the audience believe there're watching an American thriller,in spite of an all-Italian cast.More violent than the average thriller of the era though,and what will become of the child?
