    My favorite film. It's not a traditional film in that it shoves its agendas and themes in the viewer's face. Instead, it's ever-present. It's in the mood, the texture, the cinematography...everywhere. It's a film that perhaps does better on repeat viewings, where you notice little things like how Lady Pearl's monologue ties in with the news reporting near the last scene, or how Haven Hamilton's toupee falls in the last scene and he eschews it, effectively giving up his self-centeredness when the chips were down. You see things like the camera movements during "Since You've Gone", or the satire of country music present in damn near every song. You notice how the characters are made human, and the movie becomes more like life than most. It's not a political film: its slice of life. It's there to show us, in Altman's words, "what people are to people". And it succeeds in a big way. 4 years 10 months ago

    There is so much going on in this film with so many characters, it's impossible to describe -- or perhaps even understand. I can't say I recommend this film at all, but for those have the patience and interest in the music, I can understand why it's held in such a high esteem. That being said, I couldn't stand this film, but I'm not a fan of many of Altman's films. Good work, just not my cup of tea. 7 years 7 months ago
