A very good movie

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.

Robert Dupea has given up his promising career as a concert pianist and is now working in oil fields. He lives together with Rayette, who's a waitress in a diner. When Robert hears from his sister that his father isn't well, he drives up to Washington to see him, taking Rayette with him. There he gets confronted with his rich, cultured family that he had left behind.

"Watched: January 20, 2020. Director: Bob Rafelson Starring: Jack Nicholson as Robert Eroica Dupea Karen Black as Rayette Dipesto Susan Anspach as Catherine Van Oost Very good movie. Nicholson carried it with a very nuanced and sensitive performance. I think I never seen him this great, he is at his very best here. The cinematography is beautiful. The story's touching. A great film by Rafelson. My rating: 8/10"

"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."
