Nice touch with the Andrew Bujalski essay. When writing about film, I often find him to be supremely eloquent and funny on top of that. And that Dick Cavett interview is legendary. They spend two third of the show bullying Cavett and misbehaving, to eventually wind down and mellow out with real thoughts in the last third. It's been a while since I've seen it, but I believe Cassavetes (or maybe Gazzara) starts yelling about how society has disrespected Orson Welles and that always sticks in my mind.

I can't tell if that sounds obnoxious or excellent but I want to see it. This has never been one of my favorite Cassavetes but it's better than its naysayers give it credit for. Minnie and Moskowitz is the one in need of rescuing though, and the last great one begging for a decent release.

It's a massive failure that they haven't tried to get the making of to put on this. It's incredible. It really shows him
and Gazzara and Falk and their process. I know it's probably tied up with the BBC licensing nightmare situation, but still.

It would be cracking extra.

That sounds worth the price of the release alone, I’ll try to track it down- thanks for the info
