John Cassavettes über Liebe, Philosophie und Film

To have a philosophy is to know how to love and to know where to put it. You can’t put it everywhere, you walk around and you got to to be a minister or a priest to say: yes my son or yes my daughter, bless you. But people don’t live that way, they live with anger and hostility and problems and lack of money and tremendous dissapointments in their life. So what they need is a philosophy, what everybody needs is a philosophy, is a way to say: where and how can I love and be in love so that I can live, so that I can live with some degree of peace. And I guess every picture we have ever done has been in a way a try to find some kind of philosophy for the characters in the film.
