Corruption costs European economy 120 billion euros a year

Release Date: Thursday 17th December 2015. A remake of John Cassavetes’ critically acclaimed film of the same name, this version pushes it to its ultimate consequence: strictly faces, each shot lasting as long as in the 1968 original. What’s more, James Benning concentrates entirely on static close-ups of the actors, caught in uncomfortable silences, and binds himself and the actors by three rules: 1) Only close-ups of the faces of the actors in Faces. 2) Every actor should be on screen for the same length of time as they were in the original. 3) Every scene should last as long as it did in Cassavetes’ film.
