This is one of my favorite movies. It's the most incredible Cassavettes performance, and that's saying a lot as he excels in most of the roles he's in. I have quite a different interpretation of the thrust of the plot then the one line description of the movie. Cassavettes clearly suspects his friend is in on the plan to knock him off, hence a brilliant scene in a graveyard when Cassavettes reminds the Faulk character of their shared past and great times, and what it's like when you have no one to remember the past with. (I have not seen it for a few years so am not remembering which is Mikey and which is Nicky). On the dvd they have an extra about the making of the film and Elaine Mae being so into their acting that she had the camera man keep filming even when there was no film in the camera.

Perhaps the greatest "buddy film" ever. Falk and Cassavetes create characters of unforgettable depth and passion. Outstanding.
