John Cassavetes inspired a new generation of independent filmmakers by basically being a founding father of American independent cinema, and Austin Film Society pays tribute to the auteur with a special film series. In The Killing of a Chinese Bookie, Ben Gazzara stars as a tough as nails strip club impresario who still exhibits an inner compassion while wrestling with his choices in a world that can be sleazy but beautiful at the same time.
