McCabe and Mrs. Miller Rated 15

McCabe and Mrs. Miller

Dir. Robert Altman. USA, 1971. 2h 1m. Starring Warren Beaty, Julie Christie, Shelley Duvall, Keith Carradine, Corey Fischer, John Schuck.

A charismatic gambler arrives in a mining community and decides to open a brothel. Local residents are impressed, except for a shrewd sex worker who sees a chance to partner up and help make the business a success. Together, their enterprise thrives until a large corporation arrives on the scene. Robert Altman's wintry drama deconstructs the American Western by taking aim at the cold heart of capitalism.

‘If anything, Robert Altman's self-styled "anti-western" looks even richer, stranger and more daring than it did when it first appeared back in 1971.’ ★★★★★ Xan Brooks, The Guardian

‘They say that great actors are never knowingly caught acting; Altman's best movies are similarly effortless - experiences to be lived in, rather than simply watched.’ ★★★★★ Colin Kennedy, Empire Magazine
