What lingers is the Army's sexism. At first it's exposed but the story soon indulges in the humiliation of women. M*A*S*H* remains enjoyably irreverent but falls well short of the counterculture, anti-establishment war-satire it could've been.
[VIDEO ESSAY] "M*A*S*H" ruthlessly satirizes the hypocritical U.S. military, and de facto the U.S. Government, for its systemic hypocrisies and arbitrary means of doling out Draconian punishments to friends and foe alike.
A good dint lower than its reputation, more so if you look at it not as one of the seminal 1970s films but instead as the first chapter from the finest filmmaking career spent examining the American mystique.
Impudent and bold, M.A.S.H., Altman's most commercial film, satirizes the glorification of war, military bureaucracy, social hypocrisy, repressed sexuality and other norms than have lost their validity.
