Creative Loafing

Some characters are odious while others are sympathetic, but every last one manages to provide contrast and depth to Altman's view of an America in which the boundaries between politics and entertainment are all but nonexistent.

I hate to go out on a limb after only one viewing, but Nashville strikes me as Altman's best film, and the most exciting dramatic musical since Blue Angel.

I think that the power and the theme of the film lie in the fact that while some characters are more "major" than others, they are all subordinated to the music itself. It's like a river, running through the film, running through their life.

[VIDEO ESSAY] In 1975 Robert Altman painted filmic satire on a grand scale with "Nashville."

Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Other Altman films prove that the director knew how to be elliptical without being presumptuous or overly disjointed. Nashville serves as an unfortunate counterexample.

In its ambitions to say something big and different about the American political scene rises to the occasion to be a fascinating technical achievement ... .

A rare and puzzling movie: beautiful and cruel, passionate but strangely shallow.

Nashville is one of Altman's best films, free of the rambling insider fooling around that sometimes mars entire chunks of every second or third picture.

One of the 1970s most complexly constructed films, Nashville tackles the music industry and American politics in satirical, innovative ways by the use of large ensemble, overlapping dialogue, imporov acting, and songs written and sung by the actors.

[Nashville] looks forward to our contemporary obsession with celebrities and to politics itself becoming a form of show business. Unmissable.

See it, think about it, then see it again. It's the voice of America, and the passage of time has done nothing to dull its clarity.

If Nashville doesn't offer great new insights, it makes obvious many themes that a country might prefer to keep off-screen.

Part comedy, part drama, part social commentary, and part musical, it is a film that truly defies categorization or simplistic descriptions.
