  • The good thing about The Company is that nothing much happens. The bad thing about The Company is that nothing much happens. show more

  • Altman, showing the ardor and assurance of a master, pulls us into his film with seductive power. You won't want to miss a thing. show more

  • Clearly Mr. Altman was enthralled by the company's work process, an alchemy through which sweat and muscularity on the rehearsal-room floor become exquisite abstractions on stage. His pleasure is infectious.
