"Gosford Park" is an excellent film from director Robert Altman. The film takes a look at British upper class society as seen though the point of view of an American director.

The film has an large cast of mostly British actors, "Gosford Park" tells of a quiet weekend at a getaway in which it was interuppted by murder. "Gosford Park" did to the upper class, what the 1970 film MASH did to the Korean War.

The music score, the strong cast and excellent writing, makes "Gosford Park," Altman's best film work in years. A must see.

I saw this movie today, and the best way I could describe my thoughts would be to echo what the featured movie critic of this web site had to say in his review:

"Gosford Park resembles a jigsaw puzzle where every piece is a tiny work of art, but, when everything is assembled into a whole, it doesn't live up to the promise of its individual components. The less one observes the film's overall storyline and approach and the more one lavishes attention upon the "little things", the more satisfying the movie-going experience is likely to be. There are too many characters for any one to be truly developed.....

For Altman, who is widely regarded as a master of the ensemble film, Gosford Park represents one of the few instances in which the director has been unable to wrap his arms completely around a large and talented cast......

But perhaps Altman tries to cram a little too much into his 138-minute running length....."

Yet, even with the above criticisms, he has given this film 3 stars. I think that is very generous simply because this movie is so dry and uneventful. The climax was more of a yawn than a breathtaking revelation. Somewhere in between.
