Five Easy Pieces (1970): review- 7/10

Melancholy, inconclusive film about rejection of relationships; about antagonism, waste and anger.

Nicholsen performs brilliantly as a bad-tempered young man who has abandoned his vocation as a musician and instead does various blue-collar jobs, socialising with people of a much lower class. The film tells how he drives home with his girlfriend to visit his family, maltreating them all.
