Mikey and Nicky
Dir. Elaine May (1976).
The greatest film John Cassavetes never made features the man himself, along with sidekick Peter Falk, as a two-bit racketeer taking a journey through downtown Philadelphia to the end of the night. Reeling from one manic outburst to the next, Elaine May’s pastiche is as much satire as homage.
