    ★★★★½ Rewatched by Mike Kowzun 19 Sep, 2014

    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…

    With Nashville, Robert Altman finally proves to the world that he is all about being anti-genre.
    What makes Nashville the superior Altman film is that he finally manages to create perfection in many of the things he's done before. His intense usage of sound in dialogue has always bothered me in his earlier films like McCabe and Mrs. Miller or the Long Goodbye because it always gave his dialogue more of a fuzzy feeling than natural. But in Nashville, Altman…

    Leave it to Roger Ebert. I fully intended to give Nashville something like a 6/10 and saw it as merely an obvious yet slightly more boring predecessor to Paul Thomas Anderson's Magnolia. Then I read Ebert's "great movies" review (written in 2000) and had it open up a completely different side to the film for me. I know I've said this before but I'll say it again: there's nothing I could say that could come anywhere close to what Roger had to say, so I'll just leave this right here...

    In a similar fashion to some of Robert Altman's most acclaimed films, Nashville presents a large cast and multiple storylines, this time focusing on the country music scene. It was an impressively directed film, the cast was solid, and the soundtrack was great, but its only problem was its excessive length and the fact that some subplots were rather dull to watch. However, the movie's final hour and especially the ending were extraordinary.

    I love Altman's vibe so much, but mind wandered a good bit during this one.

    There's just so much to say about this film. The first thing is a superficial observation I suppose, but the 160 minute running time feels like half of that...I was shocked when the credits came up, because I thought for sure I had another hour to go.

    Much like McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Altman seems to be taking a nuanced and darker look at America, managing to make the film feel shaggy, lived-in, and in the moment when in actual…

    I can't sing. I've tried. I can sometimes get in the vicinity of singing, but it never quite works out. I know this, but it doesn't stop me from trying anyway. I'm not tone deaf, but I'm awful close. I like to sing, though, and so, naturally, Sueleen (what a ridiculous name) is who I fixated on in this film. I had over 20 characters to choose from (I feel like there's a Robert Altman twitter joke that can be…

    Tiene sus momentos brillantes pero la mayor parte del tiempo sentía que no tenía fin. Gran twist final.

    "Go get a Goo Goo ... it's good."
    "You get your hair cut. You don't belong in Nashville."
    For several months, Nashville has been on my watch list. Due to preconceived notions that I had, I continually skipped this film in order to watch something else. For some reason, I didn't believe the hype, and thought that Nashville just wouldn't be my style, or I wouldn't connect with it. Maybe I thought that because the film was about Nashville I…

    An unbelievable cinematic experience. Set in my adopted hometown, many years before I was even born, it follows a huge cast of characters through a mirror of the political climate of the times.

    My first Altman. Seems like a pretty good director!
