Five Easy Pieces

N.p. N.p., 1970. Vintage borderless reference photograph taken on location for the 1970 film, showing director Bob Rafelson and actor Jack Nicholson sitting on an oil rig platform, a camera facing them for the shot.

A shiftless, blue-collar oil rigger returns to his upper-crust family home to say his goodbyes to his terminally ill father, from whom he has been estranged for three years. One of the most important films of the early 1970s, with an intelligent, fierce style that would inform the rest of the decade and define the New Hollywood style, and one of a small number of films of this period to be written by a woman. Nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture.

Set in California, Oregon, and Washington, shot on location in California, Oregon, Illinois, Washington, and British Columbia.
