Gosford Park

posted by Jason Kottke   Feb 23, 2002

David Denby at the New Yorker describes Gosford Park perfectly: “Altman achieves his dream of a truly organic form, in which everyone is connected to everyone else, and life circulates around a central group of ideas and emotions in bristling orbits.” It’s not a movie for everyone (don’t go if you don’t like meticulously paced films without explosions), but I can give you no better recommendation than the fact that TV Guide and Time magazine both panned it.
