- Kiefer, that's the wrong fuckin' door.



You know, I'd invite you in,

but Eddie might come home.

- I don't think he'd like that very much.

- Oh.

- You know?

- Of course.

- OK.

- No, I understand.

You want to come in?

Have a drink in my house? Huh?

Come on, have a drink.

What are we doin'?

This is ridiculous. Come on.

I got half a bottle in there.

We'll put a little music on.

We'll do a little dancin'. Come on.

Don't do that.

It's not that pretty on you.

Come on, let's go.


What are you worried about? Eddie?

- Mmm.

- He's gone for three days. No word.

You can't come in my house

for ten minutes and have a drink?

What are you, a fire hydrant?

You just let everybody piss on you...

- Oh, shit.

... then wonder why you're wet.

Kiefer, that's yucky.

I think you're right.

But whatever. You know.

- OK.

- Come on.

- I wanna see you do that little dance.

- Sit down.

I'll do it for ya.

I'll get the liquor.

- Put on some music. Ya got any music?

- No.

Come on


Get down

Get up outta your seat

Get down

Get up on your feet

Rise, rise, rise

Shake your hips

And do your dance

Let me see

I wanna see

Let me see your typewriter

Come alive

You ain't too old

You ain't too hip

I ain't askin' for a cartwheel

No somersault

No flip

I just want you to


Get down

Get up outta your seat

Where you goin'?

I can't do it any more.

Oh, come on! Come on.

- Kiefer...

- Come on, come on.

No, I'm gonna go back

to my apartment.

- Come here.

- I'm drunk.

I don't feel like dancing.

Come on. I wanna go back.

I'm tired.

Hey, come on.

Kiefer, I'm gonna

go back to my place.

Come on. Hey. Kiefer.

Come on. Come on, get off me.

You... Come on, get off.

Hey, what are you doin'? Let...

Get off of me!

John Cassavetes

John Nicholas Cassavetes (; December 9, 1929 – February 3, 1989) was a Greek-American actor, film director, and screenwriter. Cassavetes was a pioneer of American independent film, writing and directing over a dozen movies, which he partially self-financed, and pioneered the use of improvisation and a cinéma vérité style. He also acted in many Hollywood films, notably Rosemary's Baby (1968) and The Dirty Dozen (1967). He studied acting with Don Richardson, utilizing an alternative technique to method acting which privileged character over traditional narrative. His income from acting made it possible for him to direct his own films independently.Cassavetes was nominated for three separate Academy Awards: Best Supporting Actor for The Dirty Dozen (1967), Best Original Screenplay for Faces (1968) and Best Director for A Woman Under the Influence (1974). His children Nick Cassavetes, Zoe Cassavetes, and Xan Cassavetes are also filmmakers. more…
