Now-I'm not so sure this was the finest movie from 1970-I'll go for BEYOND THE VALLEY OF THE DOLLS,WOODSTOCK or even the VAMPIRE LOVERS (I LOVE that movie!)-but this was 1970-and rebelling against the norms of society was the "in" thing in movies.But make no mistake-I did enjoy it-quite a lot,really.

Jack Nicholson plays a gifted pianist from a upper crust family who drops out of society to wander around the southwest.
And-thats the plot.
BUT! It's also a great charecter study-Jack is in top form,and Karen Black is a national friggin treasure as his waitress girfreind.
Some great dialouge and the diner scene where Jack tries to order toast by way of a chicken sandwhich is priceless.
This is my favorite scene,though.

Great movie, one of my favorite dramas.

I like the scene where Jack talks to his sick dad. And the ending.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
