Nashville (Robert Altman – 1975) B+

I enjoy Altman’s style a lot in those movies where everyone is a supporting character and everyone is a lead. It feels like you don’t really have to pay attention to any particular story line and you get immersed in the characters’ conversations (eavesdropping?) but you end up getting to know everyone in the huge cast. Here he focuses on a subject I could not care less about, Nashville’s country music scene. I still enjoyed the various characters and their interactions set against the backdrop of politics, music and recent (at the time of filming) assassinations.
