This movie is so different from any other Western it is in a class by itself. Acting is unimprovable. It is shot in a haze. As realistic as you're going to get.

a movie for lovers of film. set in the pacific nw territory, it is a movie about the ending of the old west as big business moves in. it is extremely well done....and you will feel as if you experienced the movie's time and place. it also features music of the great leonard cohen.

An extremely atmospheric Western, to say the least. Innovative for its departure from the standard run-of-the-mill cowboy yarns prior. There is no John Wayne/Gary Cooper style hero here on his white horse saving Nell from Snidely Whiplash who tied her to the railroad tracks. Robert Altman introduces us to bare @$$ed prostitutes, an opium den, and an antihero who is a drunk and a coward. It's rumored that the log buildings of the town were crafted by a crew who went to Vancouver to dodge the Vietnam draft.
