    At a time when too many movies focus every scene on a $20 million star, an Altman film is like a party with no boring guests. show more

    Joe MorgensternWall Street Journal

    A wickedly astute and beautiful comedy of manners-cum-murder mystery, it's too dense, and occasionally confusing, to grasp fully the first time around. How lucky, then, that it's also too much fun to see just once.

    At its best it is one of the most dynamic movies from a most dynamic filmmaker, now 76. show more
