Could have been a great film if it was the whole truth, 15 July 2007
Author: ursinsnme from United States

I just watched A Constant Forge, and after reading Cassavetes on Cassavetes, I'd have people read the book before they see this film to get the "whole" truth about Cassavetes. The big problem with the doc is that everyone has nothing but good things to say about John. No one has anything to say thats bad about him. It paints him as an angel. For those that have read Cassavetes on Cassavetes, or knows anything about John at all, you know that he's far from the angel that this doc paints him as. I did give the film 4 stars just for the fact that there is some good behind the scenes footage that is worth seeing, but for the real truth about Cassavetes I'd look to the books that Ray Carney has wrote about him.
