MCCABE & MRS. MILLER
1971, Warner Bros., 120 min, Dir: Robert Altman

Director Robert Altman spins fresh variations on archetypal themes and characters in a film that set the mood for 1970s revisionist Westerns. Memorable opening images of an unlikely hero riding toward town, accompanied by the music of Leonard Cohen, introduce this opium dream of a Western, starring Warren Beatty and Julie Christie, with superb cinematography by Vilmos Zsigmond.
