Synopsis

An inspired Jack Nicholson leads this cult dramedy as Bobby Dupea, a wandering malcontent who turns his back on the middle classes. An insightful and superbly crafted character study, it earned Oscar nominations for Nicholson, Karen Black (as a waitress obsessed with Tammy Wynette), director Bob Rafelson and writer Carol Eastman (under her pseudonym Adrien Joyce). In a slice of Americana stuffed with moments to savour, Jack's "chicken salad" speech in a dustbowl diner is now the stuff of legend.
