Critic Reviews of "Short Cuts"NewsweekApril 07, 2016
It's a funny/scary vision, with a manic edge -- which is why, when you come down from the high of the filmmaking, you may be left with the taste of ashes in your mouth. Altman's artistry can make you happy even when his art offers cold comfort.VarietyFebruary 27, 2008
As the grand ringmaster, it's here that Altman passes the baton to his actors , whose behavioral insights are critical to the film's success.Chicago ReaderFebruary 27, 2008
Inevitably it's a mixed bag, though the film's assurance in keeping it all coherent is at times exhilarating.Time OutJune 24, 2006
From the exhilarating opening, you know Altman's epic 'adaptation' of eight stories and a poem by Raymond Carver is going to be special.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
The lives are often desperate and the characters inarticulate, but the group portrait is as grandly, sometimes as hilariously, realized as anything the director has ever done.Rolling StoneMay 12, 2001
Triumphantly fierce, funny, moving and innovative.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJanuary 22, 2012
We are never made to care much about the afflicted characters because Altman doesn't and thereby the stories carry very little weight.EmanuelLevy.ComApril 28, 2011
The epidosic (by necessity) movie is uneven, but some of the stories are poignant and the acting always compellingFilm4February 27, 2008
Performances are low key but accomplished, comedy and tragedy are delicately balanced and the whole thing has the feel of a sprawling but very absorbing soap.Empire MagazineFebruary 27, 2008
Cool, clever and complex, Altman succeeds in bringing out the best from a highly talented cast.TV GuideFebruary 27, 2008
The film is fascinating and complex, and benefits from a densely textured soundtrack that makes it as interesting to listen to as to watch.
