Film Review: NASHVILLE

NashvilleKBAltman’s Personal Best–with an excellent screenplay by Joan Tewkesbury–is set midway between Nixon’s resignation & the Bicentennial 4th.

Like Prospero, Altman marshals disparate forces into a tornado coiling ever tighter towards an inescapably violent conclusion.RoneeFB

The huge cast is enormously rich, showing increasing depth with each successive viewing.

Nevertheless, FF2 specifically applauds Ronee Blakely as first among equals. (JLH: 5/5)
