Synopsis

“Before I met you, I thought I was in trouble,” says moneyed museum worker Minnie to longhaired car park attendant Seymour over a hot dog and a coffee. Such is the basis of true love in Minnie and Moskowitz, a shaggy, unusually romantic comedy that is nonetheless pure John Cassavetes.

It is difficult to write about a John Cassavetes film. His work, which is so elusive and textured in form and style, is deeply experiential. Watching his films is an immersive, enthralling, and often challenging experience. . . . Chance, banality, and humor interweave throughout the film to paint a picture of its characters’ lives which are at once simple and profound.
