About McCabe & Mrs. Miller 

Robert Altman’s (MASHShort Cuts) murky anti-western is a poetic undoing of the original American genre film, exquisitely reducing the wild west to a dull and muddy landscape without myth or heroes.

Gambler John McCabe (Warren Beatty) and prostitute Constance Miller (Julie Christie), new arrivals in the Pacific Northwestern town of Presbyterian Church, become business partners to open a saloon and brothel, but are quickly unsettled as a distant corporation attempts to buy out the town. With its hazy camera work from Vilmos Zsigmond, unorthodox use of overlapping dialogue, and Leonard Cohen’s haunting soundtrack, McCabe & Mrs. Miller is a uniquely beautiful exploration of the American dream in an illusory world.
