Movie: Five Easy Pieces

cover

This movie lends itself to short, quippy descriptions. It’s a rejection of Hollywood glamour. A battle of the bands between Chopin and Tammy Wynette. A cynical advertisement for emigration to Alaska. An honest look at 70’s fashion. It came out the year after Midnight Cowboy, and has a similar feel and outlook, but falls a little short. The writer/director seemed to be experimenting with really annoying characters. In small doses it’s pretty funny, but eventually flattens.
