Set in winter in the Old West. Charismatic but dumb John McCabe arrives in a young Pacific Northwest town to set up a whorehouse/tavern. The shrewd Mrs. Miller, a professional madam, arrives soon after construction begins. She offers to use her experience to help McCabe run his business, while sharing in the profits. The whorehouse thrives and McCabe and Mrs. Miller draw closer, despite their conflicting intelligences and philosophies. Soon, however, the mining deposits in the town attract the attention of a major corporation, which wants to buy out McCabe along with the rest. He refuses, and his decision has major repercussions for him, Mrs. Miller, and the town.


** 1/2 out of **** The story of entrepreneur John McCabe (Warren Beatty), who sets up a whorehouse in a western town with the help of Constance Miller (Julie Christie) is interesting but ultimately too difficult to be worthwhile.A beautifully constructed movie, it creates tons of atmosphere, with the music, cinematography, and sets all perfectly setting the tone.The fault of the movie lies in an unfocused plot that really never gets the movie anywhere.I understand that the movie isn't about plot, but rather tone and atmosphere.However, it is necessary that a movie maintains some form of interest throughout its course, and for me, this movie failed to do so.It was beautifully to take in for the first fifteen or twenty minutes whileI experienced the atmospheric look at the west, but when the plot began to go nowhere I found that the atmosphere was really all the movie had going for it.So, while I admire its craftsmanship and appreciate Altman's directorial talents, it provided little entertainment and offered little satisfaction when all was said and done.
