The Dream Machine --- The Imagination of the World Wide Web
In 1967, Nichols gained a huge box-office success with the comic tale of the differances between generations, The Graduate. The film made a star out of Dustin Hoffman and solidified Nichols reputation as a director. The next 16 years would contain a string of commercial and critical failures. Catch-22(1970) and The Fortune(1975) were his most noticable failures. Carnal Knowledge (1971) would be more succesful, in it's depiction of young lust and sexual awakenings. He returned in style in 1983, with the feminist drama Silkwood, about the life of the famed anti-nuclear activist.
His recent work has continued to show his amazing combination of deadpan humor and sensitive drama. Among the more noticable films, they include comedies such as Working Girl (1988), dramas like Regarding Henry (1991) and Heartburn (1986), the intelligent horror film Wolf (1994) and the brash comic remake of La Cage Aux Folles, called The Birdcage (1996).
