(1976) As at all times, John Cassavetes’ two-bit mobster Nicky is in massive fats bother ­– perhaps as a result of he stole cash from the boss? And as at all times, greatest buddy Peter Falk’s Mikey is named on to bail him out – no simple job, when Nicky retains altering their getaway plans. Or is Mikey really the one setting him up? Legendary auteur vs. studio battle with May, utilizing three cameras all through, allegedly capturing 3 times extra footage that what was used for Gone With The Wind, and hiding reels from the studio throughout enhancing. The studio replied in sort, giving it a minimal launch and the promoting tag line “you’re not gonna like these guys.” 4K DCP restoration. Approx. 106 min.



“A dark dazzler… Over the course of one evening, the two pass an entire lifetime together talking, walking and waiting for the inevitable. Like all May’s films, has the hard-to-capture feeling of spontaneous life.”
– Manohla Dargis, The New York Times

“May was known for her comedy but here proves absolutely fluent in the language of mobster lowlife, with an edge of caustic, disillusioned humor, and strange yet shockingly real outbursts of violence… This is a stag-rutting choreography of the emotions, with a sour smell of lonely defeated men, a tang of being up all night with cigarettes and beer.”
– Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“May might be the least sentimental woman storyteller since Flannery O’Connor in her stark refusal to sweeten the pill. If her relentless realism evokes the epic sweep of Erich von Stroheim’s Greed, her narrative still manages to cram a lifetime of troubled friendship, rivalry, money, and pain into the vicissitudes of a single night.”
– Jonathan Rosenbaum
