REVIEWS

Review by Richard Conner (posted on 21-Aug-2007)

Robert Altman was an extraordinary director with a ton of popular and acclaimed films to his credit. Many evinced a directed style that was unique to Altman. None moreso that the film "Nashville" This film specializes in bringing together characters, played by quality actors, who swirl around a central theme without necessarily interacting with each other most of the time. In those cases when they do come together, exceptional interactions occur. Set in the ambiance of the country music scene in Nashville, a variety of sub-plots are explored in random fashion. These include a major political campaign, a deptiction of those at their top of the country music profession (including lots of excellent such music, some original) and many other plots, all well acted by a very large cast of prominent actors. Most viewers will recognize the bulk of such actors, even today, although ones like Ronnie Blakely, essentially introduced in the film in a major role, may not be so familiar. The interacting sub-plots go their merry way, but toward the film's end most come crashing together in fascinating and often startling collisions. This is truly a film that is difficult not to watch multiple times, even if one is not enamored by country music of the depicted era in general.
