The Cooler Gang kicks back with their boots up to talk about Robert Altman’s 1975 classic, Nashville – one of Clarence’s favorite movies.
This week at the Water Cooler, we kick off Volume 3 of the Our Favorite Movies series. Clarence’s latest pick is Robert Altman’s 1975 film Nashville. The film features Altman’s trademark large cast, overlapping plot lines and dialogue, and some say a sarcastic and condescending view of human nature. Still, Oscar smiled on the film. It received nominations for Picture, Director, two bids for Supporting Actress for Ronee Blakely and Lily Tomlin, and an Oscar for Keith Carradine’s original song “I’m Easy.”
So, what about Nashville makes this a great film? What did Megan and Joey think after they saw it for the first time? We’ll talk about this and more on Our Favorite Movies Volume 3: Nashville.
But before that, we quickly review last week’s Oscar nominations. Plus, Joey gives us an update on the Fantasy Oscar pool. We close our podcast, as always, with the Flash Forward to the television we’re most anticipating in the upcoming week.
