As a savage comedy about man's rebellion in the face of death it has rarely been bettered.

M.A.S.H., one of America's funniest bloody films, is also one of its bloodiest funny films.

It's Altman at his irreverent, hilarious best.

The quality of this acerbic study of life in a Korean War field hospital has been too often overlooked because of the popularity of the TV series it spawned.

That it's is so much of its moment doesn't mean that it's aged poorly... it's brash enough and inventive enough to still feel like a work of radicalism, more than 40 years on,

For me, M*A*S*H contains as much depression as humor.

[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.

Rollicking, biting, satirical classic is so 1970.

Altman chronicles the sardonic wasteland with a camera that's always in the wrong place at the right time

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.

This is still watchable for the verve of the ensemble acting and dovetailing direction, but some of the crassness leaves a sour aftertaste.

In the end M.A.S.H. succeeds, in spite of its glaring faults.

Altman boiled away the muddled meat of literary pretension intended to smokescreen the essence of war: blood on the one side and semen on the other.

A battle against the idea that 'a war movie' had to be a serious affair.

If its bite and sass have diminished for today's new audiences ... consider that a testimony to the attitude, style, and technique it pioneered and infused into American popular movies.
