I’d like to see Tom Thurman‘s Nick Nolte: No Exit because I’ve always enjoyed Nolte’s brutish charm. I don’t care for this trailer, frankly — I hate it when actors joke about other actors in a too-chummy way, trying for light banter as they go along — but Nolte is one of the great madmen. I’ve been told that a disc of Thurman’s doc is arriving via snail mail
My admiration of Nolte began with his legendary performance as “Samurai Ray” Hicks in Who’ll Stop The Rain. Except the only available DVD of Karel Reisz ‘s film looks awful in parts. It’s nearly unwatchable for the first ten or twelve minutes.
