    Mostly as good as I remember. All these characters are at war with one another and yet they all get along great. Amazing that an elderly movie star could take over a town for three months just to make an off beat dramedy back then. We're thinking about moving to Beacon and this was my first time watching this movie since i was like 12 or 13 so it felt like a weird simultaneous look at my past and future.

    I love this movie. Bogdanovich seems so confident in the story telling power of country songwriting that he's not remotely embarrassed by the corny aesthetic. In this movie Nashville feels as thronged by ambition as Broadway or Hollywood, but nowhere near as lonely. Late Bogdanovich has been such a pleasant surprise. It's nice when people mellow with age.

    I am in this movie and I love it. Quinn is phenomenal in it. Nick’s script and direction are inspired. But Charles was in character the whole time we shot. Was that really necessary? He’s great in the movie but if I were to play Charles in a movie, and I wanted to stay in character the whole time, I would have to figure out how to get my head all the way up my own ass.

    Holy shit. This was as good as I, an elitist Baumbach devotee and sensitif boi, had hoped it could possibly be. Misanthropes make the best protagonists. Especially as their callousness gets peeled away, layer by layer, revealing that - obvi - they are just confused and scared and putting on an act to protect themselves. Movies that depict men as absolutely pathetic are my favorites. They are the most honest. 
    And this one was looooooooong. Jean-Pierre Leaud's performance is what sustains…
