The best bullet in the chambers...
kiwifella from New Zealand
7 September 2007
The only one of the GUN series actually directed by Robert Altman, this
acerbic film contains much of Altman's much commented style with
references to Bill Clinton's presidency. This is fairly obvious through
the philandering antics of the President Bill (Randy Quaid) of a
prestigious country club, which is largely managed by his wife, Darryl
Hannah. Easily the best of the GUN series Altman manages to make a
small film into a larger film that recalls Tanner 88 and Tanner on
Tanner. Usual Altman symbolism (snakes,women in white etc)prevail and
add depth but you will only get them if you know his other films. An
excellent film which transcends its format limitations.
