McCabe & Mrs.Miller is an unforgettable masterpiece. It is beautifully photographed by Vilmos Zsigmond. The graininess of the images effectively transport the viewer to this particular period in American history. The story is told with such subtlety and at the same time it conveys so much depth beneath the surface. Hilarious at times and also melancholic. Great lead performances from Warren Beatty... read more

A very good movie

It had been a while since I saw a movie directed by Robert Altman and since this one is considered as one of his ultimate masterpieces, I was really eager to check it out. While watching this, I realized that Altman is actually a rather difficult director. I mean, it is not that his movies are really cryptic or difficult to follow like with David Lynch or Kim Ki-Duk for example, but he definitely ... read more

Kind of cute, naif, stupidly and selfconsciously heroic (Beatty is such a thing after speaking with lawyer William Devane); north west reveals some secrets (you can sell and if you don't want then the gunfigther´s come; its cheap to waste the life of a china man; it is manly to shoot looking in the yes, even if the victim doesn't understand what's all about)...

Description: Set in winter in the Old West. Charismatic but dumb John McCabe arrives in a young Pacific Northwest town to set up a whorehouse/tavern. The shrewd Mrs. Miller, a professional madam, arrives soon after construction begins. She offers to use her experience to help McCabe run his business, while sharing in the profits. The whorehouse thrives and McCabe and Mrs. Miller draw closer, despite their conflicting intelligences and philosophies. Soon, however, the mining deposits in the town attract the attention of a major corporation, which wants to buy out McCabe along with the rest. He refuses, and his decision has major repercussions ... (more)

Slant's 100 Best Westerns of All Time (100 movies items)

"There isn’t a conventional sound or image to be found in McCabe & Mrs. Miller, whose scenes are charged with a jazz-like pulse of controlled spontaneity that would become a Robert Altman trademark. Compared to the obliging alternation of wide shots, medium shots, and close-ups that comprise most films, McCabe & Mrs. Miller’s compositions seem to be too close in on the characters, reveling in the nits and grits of their hair and beat-up clothes, which often obscure the particulars of their id"

"5.12 Robert Altman, 1971 Very nicely paced and the setting is pretty nice but like all Altman films I've seen there's just something missing."

"Eipä tästä sillon mukulana mitään tajunnut. Nyt pitkäpiimäisen Altman-projektin keskellä katsoin uudestaan ja nousi suosikkien joukkoon Pitkien jäähyväisten ja Weddingin välimaastoon. Kauniita kuvia mudasta, lumesta, loskasta, sonnasta, huorista ja juopoista. Ohjaajansa tyylisesti ihmiset juttelevat niitä näitä ja kamera haahuilee levottomasti. Taustalla horisee Leonard Cohen. McCaben hahmo oli parhaimpia elokuvahahmoja ikinä ja mieleni alkoi tehdä tuplaviskiä raa'alla kananmu"
