A fine recording of John Cassavetes, shot in Hollywood 1965, while he was editing Faces, and 1968 in Paris, when the film was finished. A visiting TV team from France is listening to the credo of Cassavetes that you can make independent, free films in America if you dare to follow your convictions and forget about the limits of your credit card. Wonderful, life enhancing, a must for every film student. What a pity that it is not a bonus on the Cassavetes box. I saw this documentary recently on “arte” in Germany, and I was fascinated by the truth of many of his statements. The camera is attached to the man, moving around him hand-held, and the interviewer is just triggering his word-flow. A stage for this great filmmaker and some of his collaborators, including a listening Gena Rowlands. —IMDb
A man who almost never cared of the art of film making, but only the urge to express yourself freely, whether its the camera, or the actors. Its was his love and his optimistic vision of american life that really drove him to direct. There will never be another one like him.
