    "All of us are deeply involved with politics whether we know it or not and whether we like it or not."

    An ultimately apolitical movie about the very political American Heartland, NASHVILLE is perhaps one of the few movies that feels entirely dated (not in a bad way) while simultaneously feeling like a modern movie about the past made as an allegory for the present. If that makes no sense, then perhaps it's best understood as an extremely prescient film…

    "I can't get enough of...
    I can't get enough of...
    I can't get enough of..."

    Ned Beatty boiling eggs.

    A magnificent, sprawling tapestry of perfectly executed character beats and mood material woven together with Altman's perfect editing and sound design.

    One of my favorite opening title sequences of all time.

    Robert Altman's gift for character development has never been better than in Nashville, with its giant cast of fleshed out players receiving probably an average of 10-15 minutes of real screentime.

    Both relevant today and a time capsule, both richly loaded with subtext and entertaining.

    "Are you down to clown in Nash-town?" - Aziz Ansari

    "Long, low and laid back in front" - Lilly Tomlin's character describing the type of motorcycle that came into fashion after Easy Rider, but also unintentionally describing this movie. And maybe a mullet too.

    Kind of like the way George Romero created representative micro-communities in a house, shopping mall, and underground bunker in his "of the Dead" trilogy, Altman and writer Joan Tewkesbury have Nashville stand in for America on…

    I was in Chicago this past week and I was able to take in a special screening of Nashville at the famous Music Box Theater and I am happy that I made the effort. Everything about this movie just gets better and better each time that I see it: the music, the performances, the editing and the laughs. Altman's America is so funny and piercing a the same time. Luckily this time I was able to introduce someone else to…

    As with the great "Dead Poets Society", one only feels the overwhelming brilliance of "Nashville" once the shots are fired and the music of the soul sways the crowd. I hope I'm not being wordy here, because the movie really is BRILLIANT.
    Altman focuses the camera on the crowd, dives in, and begins to deliver us little shreds of lives, of conversations, of laughter, of sadness, of…
