Comedy, social comment and Bergmanesque reverie combine in Altman’s enigmatic but consistently engaging tale of the friendship that develops between a garrulous assistant and her naive younger colleague working at a desert care-home, and their relationships with a local artist (Rule) and her faithless, foolish husband. Duvall and Spacek are unforgettably good in the two lead roles, while Altman’s attention to telling details is characteristically impressive.
