Robert Altman’s puzzling satirical masterpiece, treading on shallow water but somehow in its ambitions to say something big and different about the American political scene rises to the occasion to be a fascinating technical achievement and a strangely insightful character study of those in the pop culture scene doing their hysterical celebrity thing that includes going after sex, money, fame and power. Joan Tewkesbury’s screenplay throws in a background political story that never connects the dots but gives off an eerie mood of an America in the process of reinventing itself from recent missteps over the Vietnam War and the corrupt Nixon White House. In the process of doing its political thing it gives the best look at the Nashville ‘Country and Western’ scene ever on film, and proves to be the ultimate 1970’s film that plays out as a metaphor for America. Uniquely filmed in a sprawling and messy style, without a narrative, it deliciously covers the various activities of 24 characters (musicians, managers, politicians, promoters, drifters and music lovers) during a hectic five days in Nashville...
