Five days in Nashville. Country music capital of the United States. Enough to make a feature film? The answer is yes when we are talking about a master like Robert Altman (Gosford Park, M.A.S.H.). The days are packed full of interesting characters and plenty of stories.
This is an important look at celebrity and power from the American point of view. How that county values those two attributes highly. Maybe more than any. A big part of the fabric of the American Dream. What all of the hundreds of millions in the country pursue.
All kinds of characters make up this film. You get musicians, those who are hopeful to become stars, protégées, media types, hangers on, politicians and their organizers, and a wife and a waitress both with big dreams. As previously stated, jam packed. The film is bursting at the seams with characters and their stories. All together they make up a prototypical American tale.
Commentary on the mentality of the United States and its many citizens. Cleverly written by Joan Tewkesbury, who instills plenty of intelligence and messages in her script.
One of the must watch films of the 1970s. It earned several Oscar nominations (Best Picture, Best Actress in a Supporting Role x 2 and Best Director) with one win for Best Music, Original Song for “I’m Easy”. Boasts a talented cast comprised of Lily Tomlin, Keith Carradine, Karen Black, Shelley Duvall, Ned Beatty, Geraldine Chaplin, Scott Glenn, Jeff Goldblum, and others.
The film has been remastered to 4K quality so it has never looked better.
