Critic Reviews for Mikey and Nicky
[VIDEO ESSAY] Elaine May wrote and directed "Mikey and Nicky" (1976) as a feminist think piece driven by her volatile male characters.
Elaine May's feature not only stars John Cassavetes, but also feels like a tribute to his work (particularly Husbands).
Considering the gross overextension of the shoot and the indulgence of the actors, ... it makes perfect sense that the movie feels like the result of a game of 52 pick-up rather than the realization of a design.
The impeccably played Mikey & Nicky moves with such certainty and glory that it emerges as an underrated masterpiece.
Audience Reviews for Mikey and Nicky
a black comedy w/o jokes, and like a Cassavettes movie w/o excess, every action goes the real way not the movie way; it hurts
Cassavettes and Falk together for two hours...need I say more?
Not a typical mob movie, they are more of a side story. The real story is basically shot like a case study of two friends. It was a good movie and it was nice to see Peter Falk in a different type role, since this was the Columbo era. It shows a friend pushing his other to the breaking point through deceit and selfishness. It had very good acting and you could believe the bond between Falk and Casavetes. The end has a nice build up with a sudden but warranted end.
