Trivia

"The Epitaph" was the unfilmed script that Jack Nicholson wrote with Monte Hellman. Reputedly based partly on Nicholson's relationship with his wife Sandra Knight, the script dealt with theme of abortion, which producer Roger Corman felt was a no-no at that time. See more »

Waiting for Gashade?
23 June 2001 | by (Acme Building) – See all my reviews

This cryptic movie is a Samuel Beckett play set in the southwest. It's "Waiting for Godot" with Stetsons instead of bowlers. Unfortunately, the dialogue is often unintelligible. Watch it at home with the TV's sound off and some suitable music playing on your stereo.

Will Hutchins is Sugarfoot on acid. A young Warren Oates manages to display a glimmer of his talent. Millie Perkins makes me wish that the Nazis would take her away. (She played Anne Frank in George Stevens' 1959 movie.)

As for Smilin' Jack... Had he continued to make movies like this one, Jack Nicholson would be an anonymous Lakers fan sitting in the cheap seats 50 yards from center court.

In some respects, "The Shooting" is "Easy Rider" without motorcycles, sex, drugs or rock 'n roll.
