Example text

Shots linger on the empty space of the windswept Boardwalk, a starkly depopulated locale in which the teeming crowd of the modern city has disappeared (fig. 1). Kovacs’s deep focus cinematography makes subtle use of the affective properties of winter light to give the deserted cityscape a melancholy quality that Rafelson likened to the work of painter Maurice Utrillo. Throughout, the material presence of the built environment takes precedence over the classical Hollywood emphasis on narrative. 19 This languid temporality and sense of stillness or stasis is further emphasised by insistent long takes and the complete absence of non-diegetic music.

It was full-out class until about 1930 – until you could hop a plane out to Bermuda for the weekend … Let that be a lesson to us. I promise you – strict controls on Tiki. We can’t ever let it go downhill. That’s why I won’t let anyone build on anything less than 10 acres. No Pokerino, no frozen custard, no Salt Water Taffy”. Beyond Atlantic City, the film is bookended with scenes of Nicholson in Philadelphia, which outside the family home is chiefly figured through two carefully framed shots of the neon-lit curtain wall of the “Industrial Valley Bank”.

David soon becomes drawn into Jason’s latest scheme: a flawed real estate venture to develop a casino resort on a tiny Pacific island, Tiki. Meanwhile, the two women are obsessed with the Miss America pageant, and rehearse their routines in empty club venues on the Boardwalk. The fruitless entrepreneurial schemes of Jason and David unravel against a drama of family psychology that operates on two intersecting levels, the resentment and reconciliation between the Staebler brothers on the one hand, and the growing rivalry and antipathy between mother and daughter on the other.
