Movie Reviews

FulvueDrive-in.com - 5/10 by Chuck O'LearyThe pace of Quintet is as glacial as its setting. A career nadir for Paul Newman.
Filmcritic.com - 2/10 by Christopher Nulla painful attempt at depth that comes across as nothing more than utter pretentiousness
Kansas City Kansan - 2/10 by Steve CrumSlow, confusing, and for Altman fans only.
User Review - 10/10 by Steven CMy favorite Altman movie is "Quintet". I have at least four copies on different media. I love it because it is drenched with dread. I am fascinated by the rules of the game. The Montreal "Man and his World" sets are gorgeous. The cast is literally stellar. It was ENTIRELY filmed in below-freezing temperatures (at Altman's insistence). When I am feeling really depressed, watching this film improves my mood. It affirms that life actually is a veil of tears.
User Review - 10/10 by Kelly COne of Altman's lesser known works, and definitely one of Newman's. A bit slow for the normal MTV generation movie goer. But for those of you who love dark and foreboding stories of the future this will not disappoint. Shakespearean in its scope, Kafkaesque in its taunting portrayal of where the world is headed. Way ahead of its time.
User Review - 8/10 by Private UOne of the few movies he did that I really loved. I think I am the only one who did.
User Review - 8/10 by Bill MReflect upon why Altman, for a story from his own pen, cast Newman, Rey and Andersson, and why they all accepted their roles, before dismissing this film.
User Review - 8/10 by Eric Mun film introuvable aujourd'hui car malheureusement pas reedite en dvd, jamais diffuse non plus, cet ovni de la science fiction cinematographique a ete realise par robert altman avec paul newman, fernando rey,vitorio gassman entres autres
User Review - 8/10 by Barry CWow, Robert Altman had some grim moments early in his career. This movie is so dour, so bleak in both palette and plot, that I wouldn't recommend you watch it this winter at all. Fernando Rey must have made a career out of playing the decadent intellectual. He reprised it so often for Bunuel, now he does it for Altman. And Paul Newman's strangest role by far, too bad he doesn't get much of a range to exploit in this role. Some famous names in support roles. Worth sitting through for sure.
User Review - 8/10 by JL SOne of those movies that people either really love or really hate ... I'm on the really love end of the extremes ... yes, it's slow-moving and depressing, but it's also fascinating: in a dying city during a future ice age, a man tries to track down the murderer of his lover and discovers that this event was just one link in a larger and more sinister chain.
