User Reviews: Let’s go straight to the point: this is The Movie I would take with me on a desert island (with dvd player). It’s just perfect. If a reason for you to see a movie is that you love the actors, you like to see them free to involve in the space and feelings, this movie is for you. See the scene when Myrtle (Rowlands) come on stage drunk and Maurice(Cassavetes) has to improvise because she doesn’t follow the script anymore. If you’re sensitive to the camera’s movements, you’ll be fascinated by the way the camera moves on stage, the particular flow, that give you the impression camera follow the actors as if it was lead by the theatrical principle of "private space"… amazing. And the story is just a brilliant mix of tale and realistic drama. Cassavetes is again arguing with Hollywood and the majors’ politics, but this time, he do it through Broadway, making one of the most exciting movie about theater. Well, this movie is a bliss.
