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.

An indoor country Woodstock for flawed people. Had high expectations for this since it was highly praised based on the magazines/online/website list. Overloaded with a huge cast but with uninteresting characters. The songs just prolonged the already dull pace. Not for everybody's taste, Nashville requires lots of time and patience. In this critics opinion, it was overrated. It may be one of the movies listed in dozens of "best of" or "greatest" films ever. The first 30minutes alone proves it to be a total confusion mixed with over emphasized country songs. Not a big fan of country music but this reviewer had to try since it has been "regarded highly" in so many lists and praised by critics. Who would enjoy somebody flaunting their body in he mirror, constant singing, a couple …
