Daniel Vaughan, Director, Australian Film Institute
"A beautiful, moving tribute to the genius of John Cassavetes."

Dan Snow, writing on Amazon.com
"Carney's writing is so different from most film criticism. It reads so clearly. You won't find any jargon, or fancy-schmancy film-book theories here. He doesn't attempt to explain the films or their characters by offering simplified psychological or sociological understandings. Instead, Carney'shows how valuable it is to stay with the complex experiences offered in the films, to allow yourself to let the films teach you something new. Carney argues that all great art can give us new powers of understanding, more perceptive eyes and ears.... Carney's deep belief in the importance of art comes through in his writing as the most radical, original and hopeful statements on art that I've ever read. John Cassavetes: The Adventure of Insecurity has changed the way I now look at all film."
