Five Easy Pieces (1970)

A talented man from an upper-class family of musicians runs away from it all.  Jack Nicolson, early and great, is a dissatisfied prick running away to work on oil rigs and go bowling and screw around.  Good movie about a talented fortunate man with inner turmoil and restlessness.  Yes, he's a dick and don't go looking for a plot, but Nicholson is brilliant as a man who is screaming on the inside.  Watch for Karen Black as his ditzy clinging gal and Sally Struthers. And of course the famous diner scene.
