Robert Altman's cinematic tapestry about the dark side of the music business, NASHVILLE is a too-often unseen classic from a master craftsman. Intersecting stories of various individuals connected to Nashville, Tennessee's music industry unfold in a complex, narrative mosaic. The result is a film that shows America in all its beauty and all its ugliness, a deliberately and painfully honest celebration of a nation's bi-centennial. Ronee Blakley plays Barbara Jean, the Queen of the Nashville music scene, but might be on her way out. Hers is just one of the many personal stories that make up NASHVILLE. Set against the political backdrop of a rogue independent party presidential candidate, NASHVILLE bottles up the post-Vietnam and post-JFK assassination tensions that are yet today taboo topics for discussion and shows a fractious imperial reality that cries to be seen and seen again. Don't miss this one! (Sam Prime)
