McCabe & Mrs. Miller
Dir. Robert Altman. 1971, 120 mins. 35mm. With Warren Beatty, Julie Christie, David Carradine. Altman turned the western on its head with this brilliant bit of revisionism, starring Beatty as a huckster and gambler who takes over a small northwestern town at the turn of the twentieth century; Christie, in an Oscar-nominated role, is the madam of the brothel he opens as a business venture. An emotionally complex take on American expansion and a fascinating character study, McCabe & Mrs. Miller is given its unique textures by cinematographer Vilmos Zsigmond, who films the snowy environs with grim majesty.
