" Everything Cassevetes stood for was opposed to the sense of "canning" the self or its performances. He saw acting not as a matter of getting your part so down pat that you'd never think on your feet, but as the opposite: as a process of opening yourself up so completely that you could never say in advance where you were going to come out or what you were going to discover along the way."

Ray Carney 'The Films of John Cassevetes' (Cambridge/1994) pg. 47
