Five Easy Pieces

I never saw it before tonight. Not kidding. And probably because anytime I ever asked anyone about it, they couldn't tell me what it was about. They would always mention the waitress scene.

Look, it was like 400 Blows, kind of. Sympathetic and harsh. The ability of this story to make you love a foolish cad.

Great any age.

They don't make movies, much, about people who are living out their demons. Not really. It's all done in shorthand these days.

Jack Nicholson, I believed his vulnerability. But even better--I enjoyed his cover up.

Silly to review a great film from 1970. It took me 43 years. Worth the wait. See it if you haven't. It surprises.
