Jack Tanner: [writing in his diary] March 11, 1988. I've spent the day talking with contributors.

Astute Addition to the Altman Canon
5 October 2001 | by (Baltimore, Maryland) – See all my reviews

Terrific for those looking for a hidden Altman masterwork. It shares many traits with Altman's best (i.e. _Nashville_, _Short Cuts_, and Three Women_, etc.): strong ensemble acting, overlapping dialogue, quirky sense of humor, lots of serendipity. The political insider's perspective - which we must credit to Trudeau - only adds to the fun. _Tanner_ gains greater richness of character and narrative as it unfolds. Here's hoping Tanner runs again
