M*A*S*H Reviews

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.

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

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

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.

It shows Altman's stylistic signature in embryonic form.

One of the reasons M*A*S*H is so funny is that it's so desperate.

Although it is impudent, bold, and often very funny, it lacks the sense of order (even in the midst of disorder) that seems the special province of successful comedy.

Altman's black comedy perfectly expressed the anarchic, rebellious spirit of the 1970s with its blistering anti-war message and contempt for authority.
