About “Don’t Expect too Much”
Despite its self-deprecatory title, Susan Ray’s documentary about the making of husband Nicholas Ray’s final narrative feature proves remarkably informative about the legendary director, his experiment with collective filmmaking and the changing cinematic landscape of the early ’70s. Consisting of footage from and around “We Can’t Go Home Again,” the opus Ray made with his students, juxtaposed with present-day interviews with those former students, Susan Ray furnishes a fascinating dual portrait of a passionate artist at career’s end and a revolutionary dream approaching its terminus. ~Variety
