"… sometimes I thought about her fighting and I would think, “Why doesn’t she just accept being a woman and be glad about it? Why doesn’t she stop asking herself all these questions? Why be so pig-headed and only see one side of things?” If only she had a sense of humor!’ I thought, ‘Go out. Enjoy yourself. Have a good time. Find a man, spend the night together. Do something, for God’s sake!’ But she hangs onto what she feels is important to her in spite of all the unpleasantness it creates. That’s what makes her so special. She hangs onto her ideas. And in the end she’s proven right. Though there’s no real need to do it. In the end, she doesn’t even get anything. She only gets what makes her happy. I find that moving.”
— John Cassavetes from Cassavetes on Cassavetes
