Jack Nicholson: Probably the most famous film actor in the world, renowned for roles ranging from convict McMurphy in Milos Forman's seminal One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest, to the psychotic axe-killer Jack Torrance in Kubrick's The Shining and sleazy private eye Jake Gittes in Roman Polanski's Chinatown.

Editor Mikita Brottman (author of top film studies Meat Is Murder! and Hollywood Hex) has selected her own chronological Top Ten of Jack Nicholson's movies, which are analysed in illustrated, in-depth essays by various modern film writers. The result is both an incisive overview of Jack Nicholson as an actor, and a critical anthology of films by some of the leading directories of recent decades, including Stanley Kubrick, Tim Burton, Roman Polanski, Mike Nichols, Antonio Antonini, and Milos Forman, as well as mavericks such as Monte Hellman, Sean Penn and Roger Corman.
