Exactly What You Think It Is

brandonearly, United States of America (Reviewer Ranking: 10) wrote this review on September 23, 2012:

Pieces is pure freak show exploitation, with an advertising campaign that sells the movie like a huckstering carnival barker. \"You Don\'t Have To Go To Texas For A Chainsaw Massacre!\" screams the tagline, and then the movie\'s poster even more bluntly promises \"It\'s Exactly What You Think It Is!\" The clear implication is that Pieces offers all the bad dialog, gratuitous nudity, and graphic violence you\'re looking for, all in one convenient package.
That package mostly delivers, and it does so with a charming lack of pretense. Director Juan Piquer Simon knew what he was making here and doesn\'t let a sense of decorum get in the way. Legend has it that during filming an actress actually lost control of her bladder during one take when a functioning prop chainsaw strayed dangerously near. That shot made it into the film\'s final cut, a testament to the aesthetic of tacky, unrefined showmanship that makes Pieces great.
Director Simon once stated, \"I don\'t know anyone who says \'I\'m going to make a bad movie.\' Nor do I know anyone who says \'I\'m going to make a work of art\' and makes it.\" Somehow, Pieces manages to be both bad movie and work of art at the same time. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre may be the undisputed masterpiece, but Pieces earns its place in the chainsaw movie pantheon by being devoid of delusions of grandeur and simply delivering what it promises. It truly is exactly what you think it is.
