On the set of "Love Streams", we see the real John Cassavetes, a director who is also an actor, who believes "only the actor will know what to do" for a particular scene. This makes sense as an explanation for his films, as the actors do tend to have free rein in many scenes.
With the "make me laugh" game, we see the human side of Cassavetes, not the director or actor but the man. There is also an extensive interview with Gena Rowlands while on set, and she is about as open and candid as anyone could expect.
Perhaps best of all, producer Menahem Golan appears, which is a special treat. We need to know more about this man who has (for better or worse) gone on to be known for 1980s B-films. Unfortunately, he passed on just before Criterion released the Blu-ray of "Love Streams".
