Jack Nicholson's follow up performance to his scene
stealing turn in Easy Rider sees him play an aimless redneck who jilts both his pregnant mistress and his brother's fiancée to hitchhike to nowhere in particular.
The final product is less a story of any real narrative
coherence but merely a collection of incedents and character studies, featuring a few scenes which must be categorised as classic movie moments, particularly the infamous diner
Jack Nicholson is fantastic, although it could be argued
that Karen Black's performance steals the movie from under his nose.
