A very good movie

10 years, 3 months ago at Jul 4 8:33
Well, that was definitely a very intriguing picture. Basically, it was dealing with a talented man who made the decision to literally throw it all away and, in the process, he also decided to make a mess of himself and his life.

"Oil rig worker Robert Dupea (Jack Nicholson) travels north with his girlfriend Rayette (Karen Black) from Kern County California to his family home in Puget Sound, Washington, upon hearing the news that his father (William Challee) is ailing. During his odyssey, he struggles through his childhood as a piano prodigy and alienation from his dysfunctional family. The reason why Robert from "Five Easy Pieces" abandons his blue-collar lifestyle in the end is, all his adulthood, he lied to himself abo"

"Re-watch - Feb. 19th I've loved Five Easy Pieces every time I've watched it, so I took advantage of watching it again on Blu while I had it. It's still a brilliant little film, and the only complaint I have really is a personal one that it's got more songs than it needs from Tammy Wynette. I'm not a fan of hers, but I won't argue that her songs do fit the film well enough. Now it should probably be mentioned that there are two other films in this box set not listed here. One is Easy Rider, wh"

"A classic character study with Jack Nicholson on exceptional form as a middle-class man who could have been a fantastic musician who turns his back on his piano playing to work in a lower-class environment until he is forced to return home. Nicholson's character is hardly sympathetic and the plot is nothing more than a series of incidents but the film is superbly executed and the diner scene must go down as one of the most famous."
