Outstanding performance by Cassavetes Great Ben Gazzara...
11 September 2000 | by lilrustySee all my reviews

I recently caught Blue moon at a screening which ended with applause and tears. The film is a bit slow at the get go but gets rolling right away. Ben Gazzara and Rita Moreno are such pros and it shows with there raw emotion drawing the audience in to the fantasy. Although the characters are older this film was able to capture me with its brilliant performances and powerful truth. Humorous scenes with Vincent Pastore(Sopranos) and Burt Young (Rocky)add character to the film. An overall brilliant independent NY film. Ben Gazzara where have you been?
