Quintet (1979), Robert Altman, F

Jordan | Jordan Hoffman's Movie Journal | Thursday, January 27th, 2005

Insufferable. One of the worst films I’ve ever seen. I like slow movies. I even like the occasional movie where you have no idea what is going on. But I don’t like slow movies where you don’t know what’s going on that look like shit! Last Year At Marienbad at least has gorgeous photography. Quintet is blurry. I’m not kidding. The whole film has an irised out-of-focus effect happening. I kept wiping my glasses! Another annoying thing is that when you read the blurb it sounds interesting — at least interesting enough for an episode of “Star Trek.” (The idea is, basically, a post-apocalyptic world where the surviving citzenry are so bored they play a board game with lethal stakes for entertainment.) It’s basically Mad Max or Rollerball but with no intelligence or energy. Seriously, 24 minutes passed before anything resembling an introduction happened. I’m sure that there just wasn’t enough footage to make this feature length so they had to use every shot they had. There’re long takes of people walking walking walking, then speaking some pseudo-intellectual dialogue, then more walking. Altman must’ve been in the depths of drug addiction when he made this. I almost wish you do see this picture, just so you can see how bad it is. Paul Newman better’ve been paid well to besmirch his good name on this one.

  1. This is really only a C movie if you ask me. Come on, the Fox Movie Channel print is a little on the murky side, but anything with Paul Newman is worth a C.
