Receiving its long-overdue Blu-ray world premiere, as part of this Dual Format Edition, The Killing Of A Chinese Bookie is John Cassavetes' uncompromising character study of a gangster.

Cassavetes regular Ben Gazzara (Anatomy Of a Murder, Husbands, The Big Liebowski) plays a seedy Los Angeles strip-club owner who runs up heavy gambling debts which he arranges to wipe out by murdering an elderly Chinese gangster. Also stars Seymour Cassel (Faces, Rushmore) and legendary crime actor Timothy Carey (The Killing, Paths of Glory).

Arguably the most plot-driven of his films, Cassavetes withdrew The Killing Of A Chinese Bookie shortly after the initial release and subsequently re-cut a shorter version with a different opening. The re-cut version is available on the Blu-ray and the DVD includes the long version amongst the special features.
  • Original 1976 cut (128 mins. DVD only)
  • Audio commentary - selected scenes on 1978 cut
  • Anything for John (90 mins documentary. DVD only)
  • The Haircut (dir. Tamar Hoffs. 22 mins. 1982 short film starring John Cassavetes)
