||Synopsis: Nick is desperate, holed up in a cheap hotel, suffering from an ulcer and convinced that a local mobster wants him killed. He calls Mikey, his friend since childhood, but when Mikey arrives, Nick won't let him in: his moods swing. So begins a long night as Mike tries to take care of Nick, calm him down and get him out of town. Their sojourn - on foot and in a city bus - takes them to a bar, a club, toward a movie theater, to the cemetery where Nick's mom is buried, and to Nick's girlfriend's apartment. Tempers fray and the friendship is tested. Meanwhile, a hit man who's getting information from someone is indeed looking for Nick. Written by <[email protected]>

Watch Mikey and Nicky - Alternative Versions.
A list of best films-you-didn't see from the seventies and eighties could
not be complete without a host of John Cassavetes films: THE KILLING OF A
CHINESE BOOKIE (1976 - given thumbs down on release, lauded as a classic
now), and LOVE STREAMS (1984) are just two overlooked gems. Likewise, the
only reason you can make for anybody not seeing MIKEY AND NICKY
starred, but didn't write/direct) is that nobody heard of
I assume you have one of two reasons for reading this review. Either (a)
love the film and are looking for like-minded opinion; or (b) you stumbled
upon it accidentally, in which case I shall put it as simple as possible:
you gotta see it.
Mikey (John Cassavetes) sits in a shoebox hotel room, a price now on his
head, scared stiff. In desperation he calls his gangster childhood pal
(Peter Falk) to help him get out of town.
A synopsis doesn't cover the density of the film. Two fragile male egos
rebound off each other as the leads recall just why they love and hate
other so much. I cannot think of a better casting move than coupling
Cassavetes and Falk. Good friends in real life, and frequent
they bring an intimacy to the film rarely seen elsewhere.
Within the first half-hour it dawns on the audience that engrossing as the
story is, the outcome is not the most important aspect. Director Elaine
draws strength from the honesty of the characters. Her handling is at once
compassionate and even-handed. The result: the characters are likeable for
all their flaws.
It resonates more and more every time you watch it, enough for me
to consider it will be a major influence on anything I might have the
to film in the future.
The passing of Cassavetes was heartbreaking, the casual neglect of his
output just as much so. If you don't know much about the man who took
Scorsese under his wing, take the time today to investigate. Elaine May
on to make ISHTAR. Sadly, she hasn't directed since.
MIKEY AND NICKY is one of the greatest American films ever
