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

Frankly, Altman's opus is so far-flung and random that it simply doesn't make for compelling viewing.

[Altman] never really spends enough time with any one character to make you care about them.

Certainly, for the American cinema, it is the most epochal event since Orson Welles' Citizen Kane.

Sharp '70s satire has nudity, cursing, mature themes.

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.

More than anything else, it is a tender poem to the wounded and the sad.

The acting is entirely unaffected. Every performance rings true, whether from an experienced actor or a neophyte.

[VIDEO ESSAY] In 1975 Robert Altman painted filmic satire on a grand scale with "Nashville."

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.
