Robert Altman’s Korean wartime comedy about a ragtag group of surgeons at a mobile medical unit remains just as irreverent and scathing today as it was almost 50 years ago. Donald Sutherland as “Hawkeye” Pierce and Elliott Gould as Trapper John McIntyre push the film into new levels of absurdity as they balance the harsh effects of war with womanizing, boozing and practical joking. The epic football game in the film’s final act shows Altman’s risk-taking approach to movie-making beginning to take form. This screening is part of Lightbox Film Center’s special series, Solid Gould: Elliott Gould in the 1970s, a collection of eight classic films saluting the inimitable Elliott Gould throughout April.
