★★★★★ – Empire

"★★★★★ – This superbly composed film comes as close to perfection as it gets" – Guardian

Following his breakout turn in Easy Rider, rising star Jack Nicholson gives an extraordinary performance as Bobby Dupea  – a shiftless thirtysomething oil rigger and former piano prodigy

immune to any sense of responsibility.

Visiting his upper-middle-class childhood home, Bobby faces some kind of reckoning when he returns to see his dying father, blue-collar girlfriend in tow.

Director Bob Rafelson's turn-of-the-decade gem was nominated for four Oscars, and established Nicholson as a great actor and a genuine star.
