Critic reviews for Mike Nichols
Incomplete, and no May on camera. Still, it's fascinating and fun.
[It] doesn't try to be either a comprehensive catalog of Nichols' achievements or a thorough biography of his marriages and children... It's far more interesting to consider what Nichols has to say about high and low points in his career.
The heart of the piece is Mr. Nichols himself, who weaves an irresistible spell just by talking-about his work, his colleagues and, best of all, himself.
While an hour is hardly sufficient to fully do justice to Nichols' rich stage, film and performing resume, it's enough to provide ample insight into why so many speak of the artist - who died in 2014, at the age of 83 - so reverently and affectionately.
