MASH
May 24, 2015  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

TCM, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

For Memorial Day weekend, TCM is devoting each night in prime time to a different wartime conflict. Tonight it’s the Korean War, and the highlight is a showing of Robert Altman’s 1970 comedy MASH (the subsequent TV series M*A*S*H adopted the interstitial asterisks). Donald Sutherland and Elliott Gould star as, respectively, Hawkeye Pierce and Trapper John, with Sally Kellerman as “Hot Lips.” Very funny, very dark, very anti-war – and very, very influential.

War can be funny as this movie proves. Elliot Gould is perfectly cast as the sardonic lead. This movie highlights an era most Americans would like to forget. The Korean War and the follow up Viet Nam War were exercises in futility.
