Simply the finest American New Wave film.

Seize this chance to see why Bob Rafelson’s sublime film remains a peerless masterpiece. Backed by László Kovács’ painterly cinematography, Jack Nicolson positively crackles as the brilliant musician masquerading as an oil rig worker. Nominated for four Oscars®, Rafelson’s film set such a high standard for American cinema that its achievements remain unsurpassed. We are proud to present a glorious digitally remastered print.
