    A dreamlike film with no pat ending. This is Robert Altman's best film and a showcase for both Sissy Spacek and Shelley Duvall, who are amazing in this hypnotic example of 70'S cinema at its best.

    I like this movie because sissy spacek is in it she is a very good actress !!! Why A Carrie Remake, in God's name?!!!! It's a perfect film! Brian de Palma filmed it perfectly, Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie are absolutely perfect ,they both got Oscar nominations out of it, for God sake!

  1. Today, the movie doesn't portend Altman's subsequent tailspin into irrelevance as much as it suggests a restlessness with the comic realism he had mastered.

    A film such as this, which relies on mood, atmosphere, and ideas, rather than plot, depends on its acting to be effective, and the entire cast is extraordinary, with Shelley Duvall and Sissy Spacek both giving their finest performance ever.

    Absorbing moody and often compelling story.
