Based on Cassavetes pere script, this Cassavetes fils meditation on love and madness is a truly curioisity item, lacking the master's profound ideas and rich subtext; 20 years ago, it would have starred Gena Rowlands, Ben Gazzara and Peter Falk.

Better than it oughta be, but not much more than a wacky character sketch.

Labor of love has lots of heart -- but makes little sense.
