July 6, 2010
Taking advantage of a splendid cast, a sharply focused script and the fresh English setting, "Gosford Park" emerges as one of the most satisfying of Robert Altman's numerous ensemble pictures.

Altman's unexpected venture into Agatha Christie territory works a treat.

Is there anyone but Altman who could have pulled off such an effervescent mix of satire, affection, and devastating rebuke? And attracted such an ensemble? And let everyone work at this high level?
January 22, 2002
Altman is a supreme artist-joker, and the jest this time is that the most American of film directors has given us a finely wrought British whodunit with the emotional layering of a first-rate novel.
January 11, 2002
A sweet tune, airy but not quite gay, and it carries a sardonic edge.
January 11, 2002
Disappointing is too soft a choice of words.

The venerated American director's best film since Short Cuts.
January 10, 2002
Altman is one of the few contemporary directors who consistently showcases excellent women's roles, and he's rewarded with a symphony of strong performances.
January 10, 2002
Every detail rings true; every performance, even the briefest, is a gem.
January 10, 2002
A succulent and devious drawing-room mystery that, in its panoramic way, takes a puckish pleasure in scrambling and reshuffling the worlds of upstairs and downstairs.

So craftily made that it can't help pleasing.

All in all, Gosford Park has nothing nice to say about anybody, and I like that in a movie.

January 4, 2002
For the first time in his lengthy career, the director's gone all British -- and, once again, it looks smooth as silk.
January 4, 2002
Robert Altman and a ridiculously talented group of English actors have crafted an upstairs-downstairs comedy of true originality -- a British costume film that's funny but not at all fusty.

This isn't Academy Award material, but it's good enough to provide an enjoyable afternoon or evening, especially for those who love 1930s-era British drama and intrigue.

As with Altman's best movies, Gosford Park is above all an entrancing hum of atmosphere and texture.
December 25, 2001
Since this is the end of the year, when all unused superlatives expire like vacation time, let's call it the best assemblage of actors in any movie this, last, or next year.

Abounds in scenes to savor. It's a feast, and one of Altman's best.
