—Vincent Canby, The New York Times

McCabe Alternate

Musical score composed by Leonard Cohen!

This unorthodox dream western by Robert Altman may be the most radically beautiful film to come out of the New American Cinema. It stars Warren Beatty and Julie Christie as two newcomers to the raw Pacific Northwest.

This dreamlike masterpiece from Robert Altman careens from the humorous to the chilling to the surreal, resulting in one of the most unusual and compelling films of the 1970s.

Secret Honor (1984)

Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on Secret Honor here.

Secret Honor

Based on the original play by Donald Freed and Arnold M. Stone, and starring Philip Baker Hall in a tour de force solo performance, Robert Altman’s "Secret Honor" is a searing interrogation of the Nixon mystique and an audacious depiction of unchecked paranoia.

December 5:

The Player (1992)

Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on The Player here.

Robert Altman has not really been away. Yet his new Hollywood satire titled "The Player" is so entertaining, so flip and so genially irreverent that it seems to announce the return of the great gregarious film maker whose "Nashville" remains one of the classics of the 1970's.
