Altman’s “anti-Western” McCabe & Mrs. Miller at the Post

By Jim Reed/SMN

On Feb. 9, the Tybee Post Theater will screen the late writer-director Robert Altman’s peculiar 1971 romantic action drama “McCabe & Mrs. Miller,” starring Warren Beatty and Julie Christie (whom some of you may have recently seen at Trustees Theater in Nicolas Roeg’s stunning 1973 horror flick “Don’t Look Now”). The film, which takes place around the turn of the 20th century, concerns an American gambler who partners with a British woman to run a brothel in a small town in Washington state before running afoul of violent characters.

Decades after its release, Altman described the film as an “anti-Western,” as it sidesteps many of the most reliable tropes of traditional Western motion pictures. Boasting a musical score by none other than the late, great Leonard Cohen and beautiful camerawork by the legendary and supremely influential Vilmos Zsigmond (“Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” “The Deer Hunter,” “The Sadist”), the film was well-liked by critics and audiences alike, and garnered Christie an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress. Showtime is 7 p.m., with $10 admission (includes a glass of wine — for those of age — and a chocolate kiss).
