In this emotional roller coaster ride, Robert Harmon (John Cassavetes) is a street-wise, sometimes obnoxious writer currently working on a book about the seamier side of buying/selling love, and Sarah Lawson (Gena Rowlands) is an emotive wife and mother struggling through a divorce and custody battle. When Sarah lands on Robert's doorstep with her suitcases, it seems at first that she has returned to her husband. Robert has several women staying at his place (research sources!), but when his

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.
The movie is exasperating, because we never know where we stand or what will happen next. I think that's one of its strengths: There's an exhilaration in this roller-coaster ride through scenes that come out of nowhere.
John Cassavetes's career of risk taking comes to a climax in this rich, original, emotionally magnificent 1984 film.
[Cassavetes'] final performance is so powerful ... Rowlands, of course, rises to meet his performance.
This is a great film, and worthy of the effort it takes to sit through it.
A risk taking highly emotional drama about love, loneliness, making a connection and desire.
One of Cassavetes' most maddening films, but also one of his most wondrous and special.
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.
