  • Editorial Reviews

    This cornerstone of 1970s American moviemaking from Robert Altman (Short Cuts) is a panoramic view of the country’s political and entertainment landscapes, set in the nation’s music capital. Nashville weaves the stories of twenty-four characters—from country star to wannabe to reporter to waitress—into a cinematic tapestry that is equal parts comedy, tragedy, and musical. Many members of the astonishing cast wrote and performed their own songs live on location, which lends another layer to the film’s quirky authenticity. Altman’s ability to get to the heart of American life via its eccentric byways was never put to better use than in this grand, rollicking triumph, which barrels forward to an unforgettable conclusion.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Robert Altman is a 'genius' September 28, 2013
    As have others, I too am excited beyond belief that Criterion is honoring NASHVILLE to be part of its series. I will never forget when I first saw the film in New York City. I was stunned by it and stood in line a second and third time. It became one of the most astonishing metaphors of our political climate at the time. The film, created in Altman's improvisational style, is flooded with truthful work: Lily Tomlin, Keith Carradine, Ronee Blakley, Henry Gibson, Shelley Duvall, Geraldine Chaplin, Karen Black, Ned Beatty, and the list goes on --- all contributed enormously to the mosaic. With echoes of the Kennedy assassination, the film marches on as a panorama of the sixties. The film almost ridicules Nashville and I can understand why the country capital was not celebrating its perspective The plot occurs in five days with intertwining story lines and the Grand Ole Opry as a backdrop. The finale is a political rally for one Hal Philip Walker, a radical conservative, a kind of Ted Cruz candidate, who we never see, but who's presence is always felt. His 'appearance' at the end is symbolized by a black limo surrounded by men in dark suits. It is very eerie and, we sense, not good for America. With this incredible work, Altman paints a haunting vision for our country's future that makes one weep for our fore fathers. This is a kind of Requiem Mass to the powerful climax that makes it almost without equal. The film feels like an accident which is part of its delight. But really --- it is a calculated vision by one of America's most misunderstood directors. Robert Altman is a 'genius' and I do not use that word without it being earned. My favorite moment? Oh, there are many. Read more ›

    It's been some months since I've had good reason to use my Blu Ray player, but if there's an occasion that would move me to fire up the machine, it's the release of Altman's singular masterpiece in a high-def format. From the outset, I must caution fans of the movie--especially those who, like me, are already sitting on the double VHS version and the subsequent DVD edition--not to over-elevate expectations. This latest edition strikes me as occasionally grainy and overly dark, especially for the interior shots, and the sound doesn't seem as open and crisp as Altman's more recent "Gosford Park," which I recently had occasion to re-screen. In fact, the present edition is making me all too aware of some "dated" qualities about "Nashville" that may require me to reconsider my conviction, ever since its release, that "Nashville" eclipses even "Citizen Kane" as American cinema's crowning achievement. But, first, the case for "Nashville" (freshly written in 2014):

    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.

    By KRabin
    Is NASHVILLE Robert Altman's greatest work? When you have a maverick filmmaker like Altman, who has a unique sensibility, which leads to unique films -- M*A*S*H, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Quintet, Short Cuts, Three Women, Cookie's Fortune -- and the list goes on and on, how do you choose a "greatest?" His films are ground-breaking, entertaining, poignant, and always incredibly photographed and acted. NASHVILLE is certainly up there -- one of the top five, and one of the most haunting. It's stayed with me all the years since I saw it during its premiere run in New York.

    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.
