Nick (John Cassavetes) is desperate, holed up in a cheap hotel, suffering from an ulcer and convinced that a local mobster wants him killed. He calls Mikey (Peter Falk), his friend since childhood. So begins a long night as Mikey tries to take care of Nick, calm him down and get him out of town. Written and directed by the comedically inclined Elaine May, Mikey and Nicky, is a startlingly serious study of friendship and betrayal, a unique and riveting example of the gangster film, and a brilliant acting showcase for Cassavetes and Falk.
