Easy to see how opinions over this decidedly "other" Anti-Western are divided. I too found the buildup pretty uninviting but the photography and soundtrack by Leonard Cohen magnificent. And what a wonderful climax in the snow that is.
I'm usually having problems with the films by Robert Altman, though. This is not for all - you have to see which party you belong to.
A really interesting take on the western, with a gunslinger , lots of long static shots interspersed with some more spaghetti western-inspired quick zooms to closeup. Julie Christie really shines as a prostitute with a heart of gold nugget.
The audio mixing is a bit unintelligible, partly by Altman's intention to capture both dialogue and background noise and partly because Altman's experimentation with multi-track recording to accomplish this wasn't quite ready for primetime.
another masterpiece by the great robert altman
