It was the summer of 1975, and the buzz was all about two films: "Jaws" and "Nashville." The former was an entertaining afternoon at the movies; the latter, which delivered disappointing numbers at the box office, was an experience that left me shaken for days after. I returned to "live" in this cinematic Nashville two additional times within the first two weeks of the film's opening in Boston. Each time was more instructive, revealing critical details of the film that I had missed and teaching me more about the ethos of the disco-crazed / country-western American culture of the 1970s.
Today's younger audiences are unlikely to recognize themselves in Altman's 1975 microcosmic criticism of life. In fact, the characters' dialog and and dress are likely to strike many of today's viewers as almost "cartoonish.Read more ›
Criterion is the best video label in the U.S., and buying/owning their disks is my biggest vice (since I periodically ignore my bank account to do so). The fact that Criterion has chosen NASHVILLE is both fitting and exciting news. It's a natural for their collection. I'll be one of the first on line to buy it, and am looking forward to the bonus materials as well.
I note with strong interest that NASHVILLE, along with a couple of other releases coming in December, will be released in dual-format DVD and Blu-Ray editions -- a change in policy at Criterion. Although it raises the price point a bit, I think it's a good idea for someone like me who doesn't have a Blu-Ray player but is always just about to buy one. All my Criterions (about 100) are in DVD, but NASHVILLE is one of those releases that makes me feel like it's time to upgrade. I'm personally glad I don't have to choose DVD (current) versus Blu-Ray (near future) and pay all that money again if I want to upgrade certain disks. I assume Criterion will be doing dual-format releases with everything new from this point on . . . and that's fine with me.
