    Probably Altman's best

    In NASHVILLE, Robert Altman brought many of the strategies he had used on M*A*S*H and earlier films to their fruition. He uses the sound brilliantly, the overlapping conversations. He maintains about a dozen plot threads, bringing most of them together in the climax at the Partnenon, a huge, slightly ridiculous structure located in the center of Nashville's largest city park. He doesn't try to explain everything, leaving us with pieces to put together, but he provides sufficient information.

    My regret is that he didn't use the flexibility of the d.v.d. medium to give us the six- or eight-hour version that he first wanted to release. Perhaps an Altman scholar will get the rights to all the film & piece the longer versions together.

    Overated, but interesting...

    Altman's finest this one ain't. The dialogue is sharp and overlapping, the characters are unique and well acted, and the cinematography is beautiful. These are all hallmarks of a great Robert Altman film, but the pacing is terrible! It's a long, slow jog to an underwhelming climax. Not to mention, as a Nashville resident, this film could've taken place in any city. It was as if he threw a dart at a map of the U.S., and when it landed on Nashville, he decided to put in a country music undertone for flavor. M*A*S*H and McCabe and Mrs. Miller far a superior films, not to mention some of his later day efforts. I've seen this movie 3 times and have tried and tried to appreciate it as a seminal work in his career, but I just can't. That being said, it was key to inspiring the likes of Paul Thomas Anderson and David Fincher, so it can't be all that bad, just uneventful...
