Ratings & Reviews

  • Robert Altman's Kansas City is a hollow period piece, a costume melodrama that's all jazzed up without a story to tell. [16 Aug 1996, p.4]

  • Kansas City is a wonderful film, done with all Altman's offbeat virtuosity, maverick humor and creative daring -- plus the acid nip that runs through all his recent works. show more

  • It's not a trip of ''Nashville'' sweep. In fact, it's closer to Dullsville. [13 May 1996]
