    Of the two Robert Altman films I've now seen, I'd say M.A.S.H. is certainly the better one, and while I can't really call Nashville a complete success, it's not without its merits. First off, I think the film starts out really strong; the first hour or so is really quite fun and entertaining and all the various characters (of which there are plenty) are all introduced in pretty great ways, not to mention each one of them feels distinct. The…

    So I just saw this for the first time, and I love it; it feels like you could watch it a hundred times and catch something new or different on each viewing, and it has an ending that straddles the line between triumphant transcendence and blisteringly bleak.

    I have to say, though, I'm a little bit confused that so many people seem to think Karen Black is the one who does the striptease.

    Don't get me wrong, I love me some Karen Black. But hers is not a face you easily confuse with other faces...

    Nashville, a large-ensemble drama directed by Robert Altman that explores the lives of those in the country music industry over the course of about a week in the mid-70s, nearly bored me to tears. Overlong, predictable, even hokey at times - the film tested my patience at every turn of its 160 minute runtime. The best I can say about it is that I will never have to watch it again.

    A cinematic feat, featuring over 20 characters and dizzying array of interrelated storylines, yet somehow it manages to naturally come together. It does put audience's patience to a test, and I was a bit confused by its political undertones, but given that it's a very 70's movie, it probably made more sense at the time.

    Interesting snapshot of a place in time. Emotionally and politically subversive.

    Shortly after watching this I heard a man on the radio say that people are capable of listening to 1.6 conversations at a time.

    I first watched this around 1990 as a teenager when I was really starting to get into film - it was among many of the foundational movies of my young life that came via Pauline Kael's "For Keeps," where she absolutely raves about it.

    I hadn't seen it in 20 years, and now having watched it on a 61" screen with Pioneer sound and a lot of life lived, it's incredible how a film so of 1975 holds up -…

    "Nashville" is quite easily Robert Altman's biggest accomplishment as a film director. Once again, you're still stuck with that concept of a huge cast if you're familiar with his work. But right here is where he is at the very highest we could ever want him to be. Like "Short Cuts", all of his characters are interesting to watch on the screen all at the same time, and all of their very best qualities stick with you after that viewing.…
