Nelson's Review of McCabe & Mrs. Miller
McCabe & Mrs. Miller(1971)
McCabe and Mrs. Miller stands as not only one of the best Robert Altman movies, but amongst the best westerns made. While Altman describes it as an anti-western, it more or less reinvents the western and gives it another face. Though, for the time, I can see why this would be considered an anti-western by lackluster standards but when compared to others, it holds its own as some of the best. This stands as one of the better anti-capitalist films, as well as a great look at hubris. However, new themes become more apparent with each possible viewing. An amazing period piece if I ever saw one and, in this case, the improvising feels natural and flowing.
