It's a sometimes self-indulgent, confused, ambitious movie that is often very funny and always fascinating.
Aspires to a cynical Brechtian snappiness, but the drama is too thinly imagined, the meanings too familiar and heavily stated, for this 1976 film to gather any real interest.
The movie is full of intelligence and invention.
While not one of Altman's strongest films, this cynical tale merits a look as a meditation on American history, mythmaking, and showbusiness
Scabrous revues of myopic mythology
Altman and crew have done the necessary reorganizing and reediting on Buffalo Bill and have created a terrific movie out of the troubled dust of what was. The first time I saw the movie in New York, it was explicit, contrived, and needed a lot of help.
Newman's inspired performance is top-notch.
Minor Robert Altman
Altman at his perverse best.
Explores the interface between heroes, hypocrisy, and illusion....What kind of America has been passed on to us by historians?
A simple, minor, funny and entretaining piece of art.
Though a minor work, Newman is hilarious in the role and Altman paints another vivid picture.
In the same off-beat comedy style as Robert Altman's M*A*S*H*.
[font=Century Gothic]"Buffalo Bill and the Indians" is about the Buffalo Bill Wild West Show in 1885. Buffalo Bill Cody(Paul Newman) has just signed the legendary Indian Chief Sitting Bull to appear in his show. Buffalo BIll, here, is pictured as being a buffoon, a drunkard and having a fetish for opera singers. Since this movie is directed by Robert Altman, it contains some of his normal flourishes - Shelly Duvall, socio-politcal statement, overlapping dialogue, and a large capable cast including Newman, Harvey Keitel, Joel Grey, Kevin McCarthy, Geraldine Chaplin and Burt Lancaster who in a small role nearly steals the movie.[/font]
[font=Century Gothic]"Buffalo Bill and the Indians" is a disappointing movie. It is certainly well-staged but none of the characters truly come to life, despite the cast. I get the feeling that Altman was trying to make a statement about the nature of entertainment vs. reality but it backfires especially because this movie is not as good as "Annie Get Your Gun"(1950) which was immensely entertaining despite its antideluvian gender politics.
