A wacko funny pic.
| Original Score: A-
I can't say that I regret watching Brewster McCloud, but I also can't say that I'd sit through it again.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
There is something delightful in the absurdity and chaos of the movie that kept my interest even as I struggled to pinpoint exactly what it was that I was watching.
The film is so odd and freewheeling that it probably should have become a cult classic, if not for the fact that it has been so hard to find on video.
Anyone who cherishes Robert Altman's work definitely needs to see this defiantly kooky comedy.
| Original Score: 3/4
A sardonic fairy tale for the times, extremely well cast and directed.
Altman's unexpected follow-up to MASH is pitched fairly successfully between escapist fantasy and satirical comment on the same.
It's imitation hip.
We get the sense of a live intelligence, rushing things ahead on the screen, not worrying whether we'll understand.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Altman's best movie. No s---.
| Original Score: 5/5
30 years on, the swipes at materialism seem mild, and the narrative -- if it can be called that -- introduces ideas and actions which go unexplained.
Weird, weirdly poetic early Altman
| Original Score: 4/5
Altman's running joke through this movie is that it is a birdwatching film
One of Robert Altman's most charming exercises in cabaret humor and off-the-cuff modernism.
