Welcome to your neighbourhood film school, a new series of hosted screenings exploring film history and introducing current debates in cinema culture. Fill in the gaps in your film knowledge and join the conversation. London has one of the most exciting and diverse cinema scenes in the world, and we welcome the writers, critics, curators and cultural commentators of the capital to NW10. Everyone welcome!
Hand-picked by The Guardian’s film editor Peter Bradshaw, this rarely screened drama from iconic American writer-director-actor Elaine May deserves much wider recognition. Starring John Cassavettes - with whose work the film shares copious DNA - Mikey and Nicky follows a small-time bookie who steals money from the mob, and begs his childhood friend (Peter Falk) to help him.
One of the most respected voices in British criticism, Peter Bradshaw will offer a personal introduction to this remarkable film.
