I wish the the resulting conversation was as wonderful as the "premise," but for my taste it's not -- but it's still enjoyable and has some terrific passages. With the two together, obviously a hope is that they'd at least talk in part about their early careers together, but there isn't a word. It's all about filmmaking, with a bit about the stage. And there's a lot of unfortunate complaining about the state of Hollywood and even the world -- and while that's valuable to hear, I'm not sure that that's what people's first wish is to hear from Nichols and May.
Still, it's hard not to be thrilled that this exists, and their rapport is so warm and friendly, and their careers so interesting (though admittedly Nichols's film career has been far more pronounced), that in the end this is good to watch. I didn't do it all in one sitting, but I'm glad I saw it all.
