Directed by Bob Rafelson | 1971

With Bruce Dern, Jack Nicholson, Ellen Burstyn

"Bob Rafelson's The King of Marvin Gardens is a perversely satisfying movie—it works after going out of its way not to—and a very eccentric one."
—Roger Ebert

Bob Rafelson’s follow-up to Five Easy Pieces is another moody character study and one of the most uncompromising films of the 70s. Wheeling and dealing hustler Jason (Bruce Dern) convinces his introspective, downer radio-host brother David (Jack Nicholson) to join him in Atlantic City, where he’s engaged in some shady dealings with the mob to buy a Hawaiian island. Their doomed adventure is set against the bleakly beautiful ruins of the decaying resort town, captured by László Kovács’ luminous cinematography.
