Altman, who holds first place in my heart as my most favorite American director, helms what is my favorite movie of all time (tied with Martin and The Shining).
Intelligently satirical, sharply funny, wildly complex, vivid and alive, Nashville weaves together the stories of numerous characters struggling through life in Nashville, Tennessee. This epic portrait of politics, fame, love and loss leaves you enthralled and amazed.
Everything about this movie is perfect, the acting (Ronee Blakely will mesmerize you), the cinematography (beautiful and inspiring), the writing (flawless), and of course the directing (did I mention it's Altman at his absolute best?).
Perfect Fourth of July viewing for the more cynical set. Also boasts an excellent soundtrack (see album pick).
But what do you think?
