For his electrifying follow-up to the smash success of Five Easy Pieces, Bob Rafelson dug even deeper into the crushed dreams of wayward America. Jack Nicholson and Bruce Dern play estranged siblings David and Jason, the former a depressive late-night-radio talk show host, the latter an extroverted con man; when Jason drags his younger brother to a dreary Atlantic City and into a real-estate scam, events spiral into tragedy. The King of Marvin Gardens, also starring a brilliant Ellen Burstyn as Jason's bitter aging beauty-queen squeeze, is one of the most devastating character studies of the seventies.
