John Cassavetes was already on that Kickstarter shit 50 years ago, man. He was the first filmmaker to ever do it. He invented that shit.
Gena Rowlands plays the role at perfect pitch: She is able to suggest, even in the midst of seemingly ordinary moments, the controlled panic of a person who needs a drink, right here, right now.

John Cassavetes’s “Love Streams” is the kind of movie where a woman brings home two horses, a goat, a duck, some chickens, a dog, and a parrot, and you don’t have the feeling that the screenplay is going for cheap laughs.
