Five Easy Pieces

Rated R 98 minutes 1970

Bob Rafelson's 1970 film bridges the self-indulgence of the 60s youth cinema and the deflated naturalism of the 70s. The film embraces proletarian chic but still gets its laughs by abusing waitresses. With Jack Nicholson as the rebellious scion of an overcultured family who seeks refuge in the oil fields. Karen Black, Fannie Flagg, Susan Anspach, Sally Struthers, and Ralph Waite costar.
