I’d be tempted to call Five Easy Pieces, with its myriad scenes of familial reconciliation and wishy-washy male protagonist, a chick flick for guys, but there aren’t many chick flicks that are this carefully observed and finely tuned.
As Five Easy Pieces begins, we find Bobby working as an oil rigger and living in a trailer park, but in his obvious dissatisfaction with the disappointments of his life, we start to imagine that there’s more than meets the eye to him.
It’s to Five Easy Pieces’ credit that it lets us see Bobby in the context that it does at the start of the movie before it begins to explain his behavior, and it’s probably an even bigger achievement that it doesn’t neatly wrap him up for our safe consumption by the end of the film.

Five Easy Pieces (1970) is a moody, thoughtful character study of an alienated, misfit drifter and drop-out.
Robert Eroica Dupea (Jack Nicholson), a talented classical pianist and musician, has rejected his well-to-do cultured family in the Pacific Northwest's Puget Sound area, and given up his promising career as a concert pianist.

Bringing to mind images of goatees and fl berets, the new coffee house scene is more akin to the glory days of the folk songwriters of the fifties and sixties, and Perks has the perfect vibe for just such a fashion.
The setup for this show – The Five Easy Pieces, as MC and songwriter Roger Mahle dubbed it – was a spotlight on five young local songwriters and their music in kind of a “VH1 Storytellers” format where they described what inspired each piece before they played it.
This was actually Brandon’s first real gig, or so Roger had told me. He’s the youngest of the five songwriters that were performing that evening, but that doesn’t stop him from being the most talented guitarist and probably the most original performer of the night.
