Description: It’s tempting, when praising Cassavetes’s films, to resort to generalizations about the director’s admirable intentions; descriptions like “original,” “raw,” and “human,” while certainly true, need to be expanded upon in order to receive at what makes Cassavetes’s work special, and the film’s interview topics sometimes fall into the trap of leaving things at the lvl of simplification. But for those fresh to the director’s films, there’s still some nice material here: the commentary from Cassavetes mainstays Ben Gazzara, Gena Rowlands, Al Ruban, Seymour Cassel, and (especially) Peter Falk is predictably engaging, and the chosen footage from formative early works like Shadows and Faces is revealing of a filmmaker in the process of discovering his voice.
