(Bob Rafelson, US 1970, 98 min.)

You Don’t Know Jack: Jack Nicholson in the ’70s. Bobby Dupea (Nicholson) is a classically trained pianist from a highly cultured family in the Pacific Northwest, but you wouldn’t know it: he spends all his time in oil fields and bowling alleys, wavering about his proudly redneck girlfriend (Karen Black). When he journeys back home to see his family for the first time in years, he only affirms his own alienation in this contemplative work of American art cinema.
