The aim was to stay genuine to the moment while tailoring the characters to the actors. For all the emotional intimacy of the material, Cassavetes was choreographing a theatrical experience on a bold scale: Knives had 29 scenes and 35 actors, The Third Day Comesfeatured 41 actors, and the three-hour, character Love Streams moved among 15 locations.
A cast and crew of hundreds worked for months with no pay, many of them walk-ins who entered the construction-site theater eager to help paint or build the set, to watch the rehearsals or try to get a few lines in one of the plays. He pushed people to see themselves as artists who were an integral part of the process. As well as being a uniquely present human being; just look at him looking at his actors in those photos. Cassavetes had a talent for zeroing in on the smallest details of each moment without losing sight of the bigger-picture goal, a truthful work of art.
He takes devotees in his arms like a conjurer, then drops them in a playground of chaos. On stage and on screen, within shouting distance of the profit-focused Hollywood studios, he pursued the messy beauty of storytelling with a ferocious and exuberant independence.
