A Tribute to Donald Sutherland!

This celebrated satire depicts the crazy antics and the sexual adventures of Hawkeye Pierce (Donald Sutherland), Trapper John McIntyre (Elliott Gould) and Duke Forrest (Tom Skerritt), all surgeons working in a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital during the Korean War. The black humor of the medical team is contrasted with the terrible waste of life that they are exposed to. This was director Robert Altman’s first major hit, and bears his characteristic stamp of documentary-like camerawork, loose narrative and quick-fire, realistically delivered dialogue.

1970, 116 minutes, USA, Directed by Robert Altman, Rated R

  • “Altman's black comedy perfectly expressed the anarchic, rebellious spirit of the 1970s with its blistering anti-war message and contempt for authority.”

    – Neil Smith, BBC.COM
  • “As a savage comedy about man's rebellion in the face of death it has rarely been bettered.”

    – Alan Morrison, EMPIRE MAGAZINE
  • “Almost metaphysically cruel. There is something about war that inspires practical jokes and the heroes (Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould) are inspired and utterly heartless.”

    – Roger Ebert, CHICAGO SUN-TIMES
