Since the protagonists are mostly the performers themselves, and since, by and large, they seemed to me to be nothing but slick hillbilly narcissists, I found it difficult to become interested in their various plights.

Nashville is boisterous, good-natured, funny, exciting and brutal; it will exhaust you and you will feel rewarded.
October 4, 2016
Sharp '70s satire has nudity, cursing, mature themes.

The funniest epic vision of America ever to reach the screen.

Certainly, for the American cinema, it is the most epochal event since Orson Welles' Citizen Kane.
April 18, 2014
Some characters are odious while others are sympathetic, but every last one manages to provide contrast and depth to Altman's view of an America in which the boundaries between politics and entertainment are all but nonexistent.

I hate to go out on a limb after only one viewing, but Nashville strikes me as Altman's best film, and the most exciting dramatic musical since Blue Angel.

I think that the power and the theme of the film lie in the fact that while some characters are more "major" than others, they are all subordinated to the music itself. It's like a river, running through the film, running through their life.

Other Altman films prove that the director knew how to be elliptical without being presumptuous or overly disjointed. Nashville serves as an unfortunate counterexample.

In its ambitions to say something big and different about the American political scene rises to the occasion to be a fascinating technical achievement ... .

A rare and puzzling movie: beautiful and cruel, passionate but strangely shallow.
June 27, 2007
Nashville is one of Altman's best films, free of the rambling insider fooling around that sometimes mars entire chunks of every second or third picture.
May 9, 2007
One of the most challenging American films ever made.

September 16, 2006
One of the 1970s most complexly constructed films, Nashville tackles the music industry and American politics in satirical, innovative ways by the use of large ensemble, overlapping dialogue, imporov acting, and songs written and sung by the actors.

A masterpiece.
March 7, 2005
Nashville effectively founded the school of American improv-ensemble cinema.
December 21, 2004
[Nashville] looks forward to our contemporary obsession with celebrities and to politics itself becoming a form of show business. Unmissable.

It's a film that a lot of other directors will wish they'd had the brilliance to make.
