Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In 1983, visionary film director John Cassavetes asked journalist Michael Ventura to write an on-set diary of the making of his film, Love Streams. The resulting book is an intimate portrait of Cassavetes, and a unique insight into his filmmaking philosophy. It details the creation of Cassavetes' final film before his death - shot by shot, crisis by crisis. The book is packed with insider details and anecdotes about Cassavetes, his actors and his Hollywood peers. It is an essential read for students, filmmakers, film historians and all fans of contemporary cinema.
