elbarto470My favorite film. It's not a traditional film in that it shoves its agendas and themes in the viewer's face. Instead, it's ever-present. It's in the mood, the texture, the cinematography...everywhere. It's a film that perhaps does better on repeat viewings, where you notice little things like how Lady Pearl's monologue ties in with the news reporting near the last scene, or how Haven Hamilton's toupee falls in the last scene and he eschews it, effectively giving up his self-centeredness when the chips were down. You see things like the camera movements during "Since You've Gone", or the satire of country music present in damn near every song. You notice how the characters are made human, and the movie becomes more like life than most. It's not a political film: its slice of life. It's there to show us, in Altman's words, "what people are to people". And it succeeds in a big way.
snowman181Might scare people away with a plethora of singing parts and the seemingly fragmented story but once you're ready to look at the big picture it's really mindblowing in a way. Yes it's disturbing to watch at times but so is our society.
MhrassGreat film!! Altman took us far away, so far away.
fonzTo put off watching this until the ideal situation came up was completely worth it: at the Alamo Drafthouse with the Demon Dog of American Literature (James Ellroy) presenting the film and Dave Peel (Bud Hamilton) singing during the pre-show. Any other exhibition, specifically one at home, would not be adequate. A film such as this needs to be experienced in the theater where your attention can be completely focused on the sights and sounds before and around you. I am not a fan of country music, but this film made me realize that what I actually don't like is modern pop-country music. The songs in this film were catchy and if the actors were not trained or professional singers, they certainly had me fooled. Altman's oft-imitated, never-replicated style of multiple intersecting stories is perhaps at its best here.
You want to talk about America? It is Nashville. A public shooting and the show still goes on...only in God's Country.
Scratch47Running like a long form documentary. Almost made me like country music, and that's saying something. The final scene is heartbreaking and disturbing, and a derisive look at crowd mentality. Sluggish but recommended.
frankqbThere is so much going on in this film with so many characters, it's impossible to describe -- or perhaps even understand. I can't say I recommend this film at all, but for those have the patience and interest in the music, I can understand why it's held in such a high esteem. That being said, I couldn't stand this film, but I'm not a fan of many of Altman's films. Good work, just not my cup of tea.
acoltismypassportDidn't expect to like it, though it had several ominous, unidentifiable qualities that actually kept me interested for the entire duration. I wouldn't watch it again, though it certainly wasn't unpleasant.
And it did seem like it went on FOREVER.
Kooshaone of the greatest picture of I have ever seen, might be a little confusing at the begging but when it comes to the climax it will blow ur mind !
itsnazia1993Loved it. It was unique and funny. I found the characters interesting. And I like country music. So, definitely my cup of tea.
Alfredo GarciaThe soundtrack is outstanding
jacktrewinloved this :) a film full of such a richesse of emotion
Louise_DietrichI couldn't get into this at all although I am not really an Altman fan.
deckard.one of the very few movies that was able to bore me to death with its every single second. bravo. a total waste of time.
DolwphinOf all the conspiracy theories that abound about this mythological film, it is probably the one that it would be a frontal attack on liver disease (Nashville; NASH = Nonalcoholic Steatohepatitis, Ville = City) who in any case I feel are the very weakest.
