You think you're better that I am?

As with some of my other topics, I'm not sure if this has been discussed here before but does anyone think that Nolan wanted John to kill him? When you watch the scene in the bar, and it cuts to Nolan's face, its almost a look of self disgrace as if he's saying "I won't think less of you if you do shoot me. I'll understand. I've betrayed the cause and I've betrayed you.".

Something to do with death

Yes, he even does a nod implying to John for him to kill him. Although it cuts back to John with the Doctor and John says about not being to judge him or something along those lines.

I just watched this film again after 10 years and I like it a lot more now than when I first saw it. It really is quite nuanced (mainly because of Steiger I guess), but it fits perfectly between the Once Upon a Times....
