The Still - Down in the Dark with the Defeated, the Demented, the Damned

From a bleakly beautiful scene from Marco Ferreri's wonderful 1981 film Tales Of Ordinary Madness - scripted by Charles Bukowski (and named for a tome of his book of powerful and poetic short stories) - wherein the great Ben Gazzara plays Charles Serking (an incarnation of Bukowski, upon whose work and life the film is based) who's in love with the beautiful but self-destructive young prostitute, Cass (played heartbreakingly by the stunning Ornella Muti.)
