Love Streams is at once a culmination of the director's obsessions and his most atypical film.

There's no other American director who can do what John Cassavetes does on the screen.

John Cassavetes's career of risk taking comes to a climax in this rich, original, emotionally magnificent 1984 film.

One of Cassavetes' most maddening films, but also one of his most wondrous and special.

Nick's Flick Picks

With Israeli filmmakers Golan and Globus watching over him, director John Cassavetes was guilty of less self-indulgence than usual, and the result is one of his best movies ever.
