The question of whether Five Easy Pieces is sexist or about sexism has been troubling movie nerds for 30 years. The answer is yes. Even the title is a sexist double entendre; those pieces aren't piano music, dude. But it's also unquestionably about sexism, or at least a sexist (Jack Nicholson at his most robust), whose woman-mauling behavior injures everyone, himself included. Throw in the chicken-salad-sandwich scene and you've got an imperishable emotional weather report from the dawn of the American 1970s. (Northwest Film Forum, 1515 12th Ave, 267-5380. 7 and 9:15 pm, $5–$8.50.)
