Part of Film series The Method on Film
Directed by Bob Rafelson | 1970

With With Jack Nicholson, Karen Black, William Challee

While he would become known for his wild performances in films like The Shining, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and Batman, Method actor Jack Nicholson began the 1970s with one of the most emotionally complex and delicately layered performances of his career. In Five Easy Pieces—one of many films he made with director Bob Rafelson—Nicholson plays Robert Dupea, an oil field worker who travels with his waitress girlfriend, Rayette (Black) back to his family home when he learns his father (Group Theatre veteran WIlliam Challee) is ill. This classic of 70s cinema combines gorgeous cinematography from Laszlo Kovacs with stunning, nuanced performances that render the characters in all their painful, human, glory.
