It's not meant to be a complete catalog or chronology. It's a beautiful interview piece with archival photographs and clips that will inform any viewer's appreciation of the performing arts.

Every time [director Elaine] May cuts away from Mike Nichols talking, you're impatient for her to get back to him.

Becoming Mike Nichols will make you want to go back and rewatch Stevens's gorgeous and definitely American film, but only after you've paid a nice, long visit to Nichols's greatest hits.

For a documentary on his work to clock in at just 72 minutes doesn't seem fitting in any sense.
