A Small Perfection

John Cazale and the Art of Acting

Authored by Jonjo Powers
Foreword by Israel Horovitz
Edition: First

He is acting's best kept secret.

In celebration of the 80th anniversary of John Cazale's birthday.

John Cazale has the best filmography in motion picture history. From 1972 through 1978, he appeared in five masterpieces. But, his performances in them were masterpieces as well. He created stunning portraits of some of the most compelling characters in movie history, including Fredo in "The Godfather Parts I and II" and Sal in "Dog Day Afternoon." A favorite co-star of Al Pacino, Meryl Streep, Robert DeNiro, and many others, John has influenced generations of actors.

Jonjo Powers reflects on John Cazale and the lessons he teaches all actors through his astonishing work. Each of his five performances are examined and the lessons extracted. Questions are asked about each character that reflect John's exceptional depth of genius.

A guide for actors and movie lovers alike, that recalls one of acting's greatest practitioners.

Writer and director Israel Horovitz, a frequent collaborator and close friend of John Cazale, offers the foreword to this reflection on his friend's greatest works.
