Short Cuts

Short Cuts ★★★½

I've mostly gotten a lot more from the Altman films I've rewatched of late compared to my original run at Altman around when I was 20 (a couple of decades back now). This one had really disappointed me before, and I expected to connect better this time... maybe my expectations were too high?

Each of the stories on its own works pretty well, and the raw emotion really comes through. They're a bit...samey...though. Violence and betrayal and disappointment overwhelm everything. I think it's one or two changes of pace away from being a masterpiece.
