M*A*S*H is a comedy of military humor, with a tear here and there, plenty of gags, and fun dialogue. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 25, 2018
The finest American comedy since Some Like It Hot, the Mr. Roberts of the Korean War, The Graduate of 1970, and the film that has been expected from director Robert Altman for some short time.

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.
March 3, 2015
It's Altman at his irreverent, hilarious best.
March 3, 2015
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.
September 25, 2009
Altman chronicles the sardonic wasteland with a camera that's always in the wrong place at the right time
July 2, 2007
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.
June 27, 2007
This is still watchable for the verve of the ensemble acting and dovetailing direction, but some of the crassness leaves a sour aftertaste.
June 27, 2007
In the end M.A.S.H. succeeds, in spite of its glaring faults.
July 26, 2006
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.
June 24, 2006
It shows Altman's stylistic signature in embryonic form.
April 14, 2006
A battle against the idea that 'a war movie' had to be a serious affair.
April 6, 2006
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.

One of Altman's bona-fide masterpieces. Even better than the subsequent TV show. (Easily.)
