    The most loose and outré of all Cassavetes, which is saying something, also turns out to be his most quintessential. Like driving past a train wreck, except that train wreck is screaming, belligerently and it takes over 2 hours to drive past. Men are just little boys afraid to die, afraid to be alone, that just want their mothers. Mostly drunken destruction and embarrassment, but also empathic with a pure embrace of the ugly that is really hard to find.…

    Man lost and found within the tumultuous waves of life. One part Ford, maybe even one part Hemingway, but 100% Milius at his best. The purest of American films.

    I've never felt like crying for nearly five hours straight, but I have now. Not crying because I was sad, or crying because I was happy, just a swell of emotions all at once constantly ebbing and flowing, arising for no particular reason, just because. Images, sound, light, darkness, a Bolex and a life lived, a life loved, a life remembered and spliced together at the end of the century.
