In this feature-length companion piece to Nicholas Ray’s We Can’t Go Home Again, Ray’s widow, Susan, examines her late husband’s stormy romance with Hollywood, his self-imposed exile in Europe, and his eventual return to America, where he began work on the wildly experimental magnum opus that would become his final cinematic testament. Incorporating never-before-seen archival picture and sound from the Nicholas Ray Archive, and new interviews with directors Victor Erice and Jim Jarmusch and many of the original cast and crew of We Can’t Go Home Again, Don’t Expect Too Much offers a revealing portrait of a great director’s life, work and lasting influence. North American premiere. An Oscilloscope Laboratories release.
