We were saddened to learn that legendary filmmaker Mike Nichols passed away earlier this week. His work spanned decades and provided us with some of the greatest films of the 20th century. We were lucky enough to have Nichols as a guest at the Burns twice, in 2003 with Angels in America and in 2004 with his film Closer, just two of his many iconic works. For more of Mike Nichols incredible work, check out Vulture’s list of 8 Great Mike Nichols Movies (and 4 Wonderful Comedy Sketches).
Below is a clip from his Q&A with Janet Maslin in November, 2004, following a screening of Closer.
