The Diversity of Emotions: Jack Nicholson’s Anger

We are a creative bunch, and with creativity comes a numerous amount of emotions. These emotions can be quite straightforward and simple, such as sadness, happiness and anger. In reality emotions are anything but.

Jack Nicholson is famously known for his expressive acting, often times utilizing intense anger and frustration in his acting.

Even though a great deal of Nicholson’s roles revolve around anger and intensity, none of his roles feel the same.

In this video, Nerdwriter1 tells us his findings on studying Jack’s roles and characters. You’ll realise, along with Nerdwriter, that Nicholson incorporates an inspirational sense of emotional duality in almost every one of his characters.

We’re complex creatures and our emotions always have reasons and depth behind them. Whenever one of Jack’s characters is angry, there’s a hidden second emotion behind the anger creating a believable and tenacious performance, such as fear, jealousy or even sadness.
