Having the face of a complete lunatic helps a lot
I am curious to how high his blood pressure is
I'm sure Anjelica Huston could also make a video about the same subject but on his real life.

Everyone says that Jack Nicholson looks like a crazy person. No he was just so good at playing one that his face became the picture people think of when they think of a crazy person....

This is def one of the best youtube channels ever!

My mom was unnerved by his performance in The Shining so much that she was convinced he really was crazy. My dad assured her he was just acting. "NO!" she replied, "No one can just act that crazy". She was giving him the best compliment an actor can get.

In his youth, he'd have been one hell of a Wolverine.
Nicholson's bodily anger made me think of the 'Nicholas Cage loses his shit' video. Do a video on him and lose your mind like Abed

I met the man once. At a bookstore near the Stanley hotel, yes THAT Stanley hotel. And it was about as terrifying and cool to meet him as you would expect
Jack Nicholson is a national treasure.

I would really dig a complete list of all the movies referenced here.
Nicholson is at his absolute best in those short seconds leading up to his anger explosions

WHAT a great looking guy, seriously, he also has such a wide range of looks. wow what a legend!
Watching him get angry is good for the soul.

He is one of the most charismatic actors of all time.He is so smooth and also iconic with body language
His performance in As Good As It Gets is impeccable.

I love that Tom Cruise uses the anger of Jessup (Nicholson) to win the case.
His role in the One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest will always be my favorite.

Ive always maintained a younger buffed-up Jack Nicholson would've made the perfect Wolverine.
This is definitely why he was chose as his role for Anger Management, because he is the master of anger.
I think from now on when I get angry I'm going to refer to is as having "A Jack Attack". lol
He was weirdly sexy back in the day. I can't believe I'm crushing on Jack Nicholson now. 😂

Steven ogg is like the calm jack Nicholson. imo.
Weird, I literally watched the shining for the first time yesterday and now this comes out
Funkky Monkey
Funkky Monkey:
Note: when he is in fear... he uses all of his arms and legs...
When he is in aggressive anger... his arms will flail, but he is completely planted and assembled...
Fantastic video. It's easy to write Nicholson off as an eccentric one-trick pony but you really bring out the nuance of his acting.

Jack, the Marlon Brando of anger. The absolut actor!
This video was impeccable.

Nerdwriter, you need to do a Donnie Darko 15th year anniversary film analysis.

Cult classic.
Fantastic. A genuine sense of understanding of Nicholson. He's one of my favourite actors and I still felt like I learned something.

Jack has to be one of my favorite actors! In addition to his mastery of anger, I think his performances as The Joker in 'Batman,' Jack Torrance in 'The Shining,' and Randle McMurphy in 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' make a great case for his mastery of madness and lunacy as well. Fantastic video.

Great video, insightful, interesting and even slightly educating. We all have to deal with our own anger. I know I do. I absolutely HATE ignorance. And I LIVE in Arkansas. :)

He's always insane
man you know i'm an actress just starting out, and this video reallllllly helped me so much. i have such a better understanding of acting now, like i always knew that when you are acting, you are showing a character as a real, living person with complex emotions and depth. but this video goes into how the same emotions are always so different, how character and personality affects everything, and how everything in the environment of the character that could in any possible way affect the tone of the emotion, will always affect the emotion. thank you so much

“The constellation of emotions”....

Every time i open one of these videos i think its gonna be some pretentious nonsense, but it usually ends with me being impressed and informed

I had to rewatch this one twice. First time I was too distracted by Jack's acting.Too good
The true master of anger is Alex Jones.

That delivery and that face... Bone chilling.
I stopped 10 minutes into this film, this guy is making my anger issues go crazy

Hi, I'm a 15 year old kid doing theatre and I'm going to portraying the role of Shylock in a short monologue. And like his confidence and anger, I want to reach or atleast be closer to it to an extent. And this helped me, thanks a lot.
carol King
carol King:
He’s brilliant. Imagine doing that in front of a camera and booms and ordinary people all around him. He has to be the best.
He isn't afraid of getting ugly. In a world where Hollywood mostly portray humans as always being the prettiest little perfect things, he stands out like a shining idol.

I miss the old nerdwriter intro. i love that swirl of the coffee cup.
"Exploration of relationship between body and mind ...." which the actor barks louder at the dog ..

Dude, give yourself a break from twisting your own mind.

This is why I personally don't really like Jim Carrey, he always plays the same character in every comedy movie he's in.
