Cassavetes 3

After receiving the prognosis from his doctor that he had six months to live, Cassavetes made Love Streams (1984) which featured him as an aging playboy who suffers the overbearing affection of his recently divorced sister. It was entered into the 34th Berlin International Film Festival where it won the Golden Bear.[6] The film is often considered Cassavetes’s “last film”, in that it brought together many aspects of his previous films and also in that he despised the film he made afterwards, Big Trouble (1986), which he took over during filming from Andrew Bergman, who wrote the original screenplay. Cassavetes came to refer to the film as “the aptly titled ‘Big Trouble'”, since the studio vetoed many of his decisions for the film and eventually edited most of the film in a way which Cassavetes disagreed with.[7]
