Suberb performances both from the leads and the assembled extras on yet another Altman masterpiece. Here he subverts the excepted modes of the Western genre with Beatty as the non-heroic McCabe and Christie as third-rate Madam.

Burton and Taylor in a screen version of the kind of love-hate relationship which they were famous for in private, a kind of on-screen therapy. Taylor gives what is probably her finest performance as the blowsy harridan Martha, while Burton is not quite so hammy as usual as her angst-ridden college professor husband. The verbal fireworks that occur when they invite a young couple to dinner are surprisingly convincing. A must see classic. find out more...
