Mike Nichols: American Masters is a 2016 documentary film directed by Elaine May about the life of Mike Nichols broadcast on the PBS series American Masters. It is derived from a lengthy interview with Nichols conducted by producer Julian Schlossberg. Brian Lowry of Variety has called it "the last memorable Nichols-May collaboration." Richard Brody said that although it is not a major contribution to May's life's work, it "is nonetheless distinctive in its sparseness, its fixed and almost obsessive concentration on Nichols’s face and voice... [it's] May’s highest tribute to Nichols."
