    Hands down my favorite Nicholson performance. He brings so much complexity and sympathy to a character who makes it very hard to root for him. He barely roots for himself, as to invest any emotions into hope for contentment is only setting himself up for disappointment.

These characters don't really act like people act but they certainly feel like people feel.

    Candela is such a gem of a character.
