SHORT CUTS (Robert Altman, US 1993, 188 min)
This epic drama from Robert Altman is inspired by nine short stories and a poem by Raymond Carver. The script by Altman and his regular collaborator Frank Barhydt is a masterclass in adaptation, combining multiple stories and characters into a single piece.
Short Cuts ‘captures… uneasiness perfectly in its interlocking stories about people who seem trapped in the present, always juggling.’ (Roger Ebert)
