    Nashville strikes me as a film that I need to see again. As well as it being rather entertaining and funny, it's also delves into many interesting and quite important themes. I could easily see myself thinking that this piece of work is a masterpiece after another watch. I wouldn't mind watching it again, either, except maybe one thing bugged me slightly. It's a musical drama, and thought not as aggravating (to some people) as some musicals can be, the country music can become irritating. That's just me though.

    Films I hope to see by the end of 2014

    Oh, boy. Where do I begin? I. Love. This. Movie. Now that that's out of the way, I'll say a few more words. It's amazing how well organised Altman's films were/are. You know, with all the overlapping dialogue and 58 trillion principal characters in his movies. It just works. I'm also amazed at the fact that the actors wrote their own songs for this, and they're all good songs too…

    This was one of the first Robert Altman films I saw over 3 years ago and at the time, I could not wrap my head around it. Revisiting it now, with knowledge of 34 more Altman movies in my head, I realized that this is an obvious masterpiece, a perfect satire and the quintessential Robert Altman film. Nashville is fascinating because it is so many things, from a sprawling portrait of a city to a Southern soap opera, and does…

    Just watched Nashville again.

    LOVE THIS FILM. CINEMA HEAVEN, EVERY TIME I WATCH IT.

    New things I focused on this time around. The soldier. He comes from Vietnam. He has lost hope. His mother asks him to just look at Barbara Jean. Jean is the symbol of hope.

    SPOILERS!!! Barbara Jean is killed. In the end the soldier walks away without a hope. END OF SPOILERS

    Another thing that stayed with me was the religious ceremonies in the middle of…

    Perhaps not until Enter the Void had anyone even come close to such a frenzied and fevered opening credit sequence as this. I know it sounds trite, but it was an explosion of Americana put onto film.

    Then the movie started and for about 30 minutes I thought 'oh man, what did I get myself into.' Altman films are a bit of a risk for me and I either love them or hate and this started out in the latter…

    Ταλαιπωρημένη η κόπια των Νυχτών Πρεμιέρας αλλά η ταινία είναι ένα γνήσιο έπος αλά Ρόμπερτ Άλτμαν.

    Η κόπια δεν ήταν η καλύτερη δυνατή και οι υπότιτλοι ήταν άκυροι και out of sync, αλλά και πάλι παραμένει το Nashville στο σινεμά και η ωμή του δύναμη δύσκολα χάνεται. 40 χρόνια μετά, δεν έει βγει τίποτα που να το ξεπερνά στον ορισμό των ΗΠΑ.

    Is there a more perfect film to watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon?

    Even in my fifth time around (although first on beautiful MoC Blu-Ray), there are new and exciting things that I feel like I'm seeing for the first time: the solitary clap after Connie White introduces herself at the Opry; the cut to the American flag during 'My Idaho Home'; that Winifred is precisely everywhere at exactly the right time; "WONDER, WANDA!" "NO, IT'S WANDA, WANDER!" Indeed, my…

    Takes a little bit to hit its stride, but when it does, there's hardly a more potent cultural relic. Desperate in its lament of a nation's selective amnesia and exceptionalism but also playful in its sly ribbing of the same.

    Pretty large nugget to chew on and try and swallow, not sure how to assess a couple of the major events from the plot. But the scenes are all given room to breathe and the numerous complete live music performances (which comprise a lot of the running time) flesh out the characters and make them remarkably realized.


    BONUS:

    1) As a local, the dialogue seemed to be mad libs for our city, just randomly inserting nouns (roads and landmarks) into…
