In this outtake from a 1978 television interview, Cassavetes discusses his film Opening Night for a while, and builds into a terrific rant on movies and movie audiences.

This is a great example of Cassavetes' way with words, his dislike of people who live only for the approval of others, and his anger at the low popularity of his later films (especially Opening Night and Killing of a Chinese Bookie) None of which was dealt with in the "Constant Forge" documentary that came on the Criterion Collection box set.

Again, apologies for the text on the screen. Not my fault!
