MASH was a seminal movie, right up there with The Graduate. I can't tell you how exciting these movies were in their time. Like a breath of fresh air lifting the curtains and blowing the dust out of the house. Great. Great. Great.
I loved Short Cuts, The Player, Pret a Porter, Kansas City, all of them. And Nashville. My god, another seminal movie. We will not see the likes of Mr Altmann again, and more's the pity.
