"Five Easy Pieces was a breakthrough road movie. Jack Nicholson, as the black sheep scion of a family of classical musicians, plays skillfully and honestly against the surefire pathos of the alienated loner.
His trek from gritty Southwest oil fields to his charming Seattle homestead is sketched in an elliptical, absurdist, harshly humourous and convulsively lyrical style." -- Andrew Sarris, Village Voice.
