I love that movie. The tone is perfect. Gould is perfect. I've only seen a handful of Altman (including MASH, which Gould is also great in), but TLG is my favourite. It's almost as close to The Big Lebowski as to the old Bogie noirs, though witty rather than overtly comedic.
It was made years before Schwarzenegger really got into acting, so cameo is the right word. I don't think he has any dialogue.

hello to all.... i've read your comments with interest, but i want to ask something else.
according to some negative reviews i read from a year or so ago, the mubi offering in ireland is very limited compared to 'across the water'.... is this true?
and regarding the streaming experience itself (and i confess to being a technophobe, i'm simply wondering about the end result), some reviewers complained about buffering and other issues re viewing, resulting in cancelled subscriptions, hair-tearing, poor customer support, and so on .... is this your experience as of feb 2021, or have things improved?
i'm seriously thinking about subscribing, so i'm just looking for advice from anyone whose signed up.
many thanks for your comments thus far, and for any advice or feedback you can give!

many thanks for this; much appreciated...
i think there were diffs between what was offered in britain, due to copyright or distribution, though i'm not 100% about that...
re the actual using of mubi.... i'd be watching this on a tv, nothing else..... does it require particular set-ups? boxes, and so on (like my roku box for netflix)?

There have been some comments about the offering of films on Irish MUBI not being up to those on other places. I don't really get this; fundamentally, what you regard as a good film is totally subjective; one man's meat is another man's poison etc.
On Irish MUBI in the last year I have watched films by Fellini, Scorcese, de Palma, Almodovar, Francis Ford Coppola, Cimino, Antonioni, Kieslowski, Sergio Leone, Wong Kar Wai, Wes Anderson; some of the greatest directors in the history of cinema.
There are generally more films there I want to see than I have time to watch. For me it has been a complete revelation, and has probably saved my sanity during three lockdowns.....:)

Watching Listen Up, Philip right now... It reminds me of Noah Baumbach at times but keeps jumping between great scenes and feeling incredibly pretentious. Finding the Elizabeth Moss portion a lot easier than Schwartzman's..

Also, watching the Three Colours trilogy atm, on Mexico MUBI ! It has better selections, imo.
