Drive, He Said

Jack Nicholson cowrote and directed this rarely-seen counterculture mood piece from 1971. Fine cast includes Karen Black, Bruce Dern, Robert Towne and Henry Jaglom. William Tepper headlines as a college basketball player being pressured to go pro. Meanwhile, his roommate has become a radical political protester and is feigning madness to avoid the Vietnam draft. The approach is a bit scattershot, but the cast (mostly Nicholson pals) is quite good, with Dern giving a memorable performance as a hard-driving basketball coach. Double-featured with Fat City. 95 minutes R.
