    What to say about Robert Altman's Nashville? It has a lot of songs and music so it's technically a musical. It has its smattering politics and Altman is typically one for subverting the norm, so you could call it a satire. There's romance, drama, in-fighting, and star power certainly, but it hardly gets to the heart of the film.

    In fact, Nashville has an ensemble bulging at the seams with 24 individuals billed in alphabetical order and their names called…

    One of my favorite films, without a doubt. You can see the influence peppered on Paul Thomas Anderson's films, and pretty much everywhere else. Altman is king.

    Though Nashville is an ambitious project, it doesn't disappoint one bit.

    What is Nashville, in a few sentences?

    America. A great, yet flawed nation. The music scene. The rampant political state of the nation. Everything that's outrageous in this world. The path for Paul Thomas Anderson to follow along with in Boogie Nights and Magnolia.

    But really, what's Nashville supposed to be?

    The possibilities are just endless. Is it a look at where America is going in the future? Is it a look at the celebrity culture these days with how…

    If the 1970s were Robert Altman's high time for generating layered ensemble narratives that explored the most surreal and quirky aspects of Americana, then this film, covering a few days in Nashville before a political rally, is his masterpiece of the period. Incredible layering of dialogue and overlapping of character, with so many stand-out performances, especially from Ronee Blakely, Lily Tomlin, Gwen Welles, and Michael Murphy.

    I said God Damn! God Damn...God Damn...

    Now this is an All-American movie. I've questioned Altman's vision in the past but no more. His gigantic ensemble casts and interweaving story lines have up until this point failed to really come together for me. I think it's obvious that his other films just didn't go big enough. Nashville is so large, the moving parts work without touching each other. You can tune in at any one moment and it makes absolute…

    A perfect cross section of America, circa 1974. That's the best way to sum up the work of art known as Nashville. It's one of the most sincere and authentic films I have ever seen; the ensemble cast (perhaps one of the greatest ever assembled) gives marvelous, memorable performances and sing loud and proud, in perhaps one of the best musicals ever made. Altman directs deftly, managing to juggle 24 main characters perfectly, and creating incredible parallels between them. To…

    I've never seen a movie quite like "Nashville." The way it moves, sounds, and operates it so unique it feels like a genre unto itself. Altman didn't make movies like any other filmmaker I've come across. I was shocked at how glued to the screen I was by the end. "Nashville" takes a time and a place and creates a living, moving portrait. It's like seeing a quilt come to life, each square woven into the next, each telling its own story while being part of something grand and strikingly beautiful.

    Film is often, but not exclusively, a narrative art. It tells a story. Sometimes, as in many of Robert Altman's films, the purpose is not to tell a story, but rather to show us a place and it's people; to capture a moment in time. Nashville, like New York and Los Angeles, is a place that attracts seekers and dreamers. A place where people come to make there mark, and where those who have realized their dreams hold court. The…
