Mikey and Nicky (moviesbyrizzo)

Tros, Tyriusve mihi nullo discrimine agitur
"Trojan or Tyrian - I treat them as the same without discerning between them..."

Mikey and Nicky (1976) 

This movie stars two men with great Human spirit showing at all times (like Alan Alda if you will
at the core I say) The great Mr. Peter Falk of "Detective Columbo " Series fame (Thought he was Italian
like everyone else might have - turns out he's parents are Russian-Polish I'm now given to understand
- no matter - same perspective I say - and then there's John Cassavettes of Greek descent with his
great spirit as well to round out the team.

There's interesting scenes including a "near" bar-room brawl when Cassavettes character gets
a bit biting with his racist humour in an all black bar, and another when his woman tells him to
leave her apartment in what seems a bit too much of a biting moment of tearing into his spirit
with just a bit too much intensity than would be dictated as sane I submit, to accomplish
the purpose without causing harm. Some women aren't careful enuf around this
great spirit of these two types of men- the opposite is what it seems to draw out - go figure!
