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
It's imitation hip.
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.
| Original Score: 3/5
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
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.
A sardonic fairy tale for the times, extremely well cast and directed.
Altman's running joke through this movie is that it is a birdwatching film
A wacko funny pic.
| Original Score: A-
| Original Score: 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.
Weird, weirdly poetic early Altman
| Original Score: 4/5
Anyone who cherishes Robert Altman's work definitely needs to see this defiantly kooky comedy.
| Original Score: 3/4
One of Robert Altman's most charming exercises in cabaret humor and off-the-cuff modernism.
Altman's best movie. No s---.
Altman's unexpected follow-up to MASH is pitched fairly successfully between escapist fantasy and satirical comment on the same.
