    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.…

    I... I desperately need to revisit my initial opinions once I've seen more Altman. I feel like Altman has the same effect on me as the Coen brothers: I don't know how to feel the first viewing, but by the second I'm in love.

    Somehow, it has managed to get even better since the last time I saw it. Funny, upsetting, altogether rewarding. And full of music - WHY -- IT'S JUST LIKE AMERICA! (no, but really, it is)

    Like Short Cuts but before he found the most compelling way to tell multiple interlaced stories. Had a few great scenes but meandered too much for my taste. Great musical performances.

    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.

    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.
