At over 2 and a half hours, "Nashville" isn't too long, it"s not long enough. I never wanted this grand blend of character motivation, humor, and country music to end.

An assemblage of people, ideas, and music, that culminates in representing a certain time and place. This plotless endeavor is a messy meandering collage that offers few entertaining moments in it's slowly paced long run. I found it hard to maintain interest, when I did not feel there was a single character worth following. The movie spins in different directions without any prior directions in mind. The main problem here is that the movie is just flat-out boring. I appreciate the authentic intent and not much else.

Absolutely, Robert Altman's best film. The massive cast blends together and the plotlines messily overlap, per usual Altman style, but the small character moments revealed here are rich and reveal a lot of insight about human character. From purely a music industry standpoint, the backstage manipulations, heartbreaks, successes, and negotiation is also impressive and accurate to watch. The film succeeds on so many levels, not the least of which is the elegant soundtrack. It speaks mightily to a particular time period of music and politics and is entrancing to watch.

When Nashville came out, people really weren't used to multiple story lines all moving along and intertwining here and there, like almost every TV drama nowadays. People still aren't accustomed to multiple story lines that seem a bit loose, almost random, full of Altman's usual interruptions and overlapping dialogue. But it's not about the plot; it only occasionally seems to be about the music. It's an attempt to show the range of personalities in the world of country and western music at the time, and it's a nice and uneven ride.

Some people thought it was rad that I actually saw this in Nashville (in the theater no less), but this movie failed to impress me. Somehow I don't really appreciate chaos. I recognized the characters that were based on Loretta Lynn and such. The music was somewhat interesting and Lily Tomlin's character was the best.

I honestly don't understand why the critics love this Altman directed ensemble drama. The pacing is horribly slow. And literally, nothing happens until about two hours into the film.
