I'm doing a presentation on this for a class, so I rewatched it again today, on a much bigger screen with an audience.
I've seen this movie three times before but this is the first time I've been on the verge of tears. Next time, I think I'll bawl.
Robert Altman films a town, but captures a nation.
Nashville is an overwhelming, filmmaking marvel. It's the kind of movie that leaves you drained, punch drunk and feeling like you've just seen the world in two hours. It's fantastic at lulling the audience into a mood, effortlessly shifting as the stories do. It's hilarious, it's devastating, it's shocking, it's uplifting, and by the end, it's unforgettable.
