Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

Mccabe & Mrs. Miller
Director: Robert Altman
Cast: Warren Beatty, Julie Christie, Rene Auberjonois, John Schuck, Bert Remsen

A brilliantly original and atmospheric anti-western. Warren Beatty plays a businessman who opens a brothel in a frontier town and Julie Christie is a prostitute who runs the place. They are both excellent. Robert Altman's view of the west is a far cry from the glamorous heroes who ride through beautiful prairies into the sunset.
