Short Cuts

Robert Altman Estados Unidos, 1993

Duncan Gray's rating of the film Short Cuts: Vidas cruzadas

At the risk of heresy, I don't think this is top-shelf Altman. The cast is an amazing who's-who of everyone in indie films circa 1990, and there's a certain pleasure to the way the plot diffuses, with loose ends splayed in all directions. But it's also stretched thin and uneven, with its characters feeling less like complete people than like actors showing off their chops.
