Criterion Collection. The work of two great American artists merge in Short Cuts, maverick director Robert Altman's kaleidoscopic adaptation of the stories of renowed author Raymond Carver. Epic in scale yet meticulously observed, the critically-acclaimed 1993 film interweaves the stories of 22 characters as they struggle to find solace and meaning in contemporary Los Angeles. The extraordinary ensemble cast includes, among many others, Tim Robbins, Julianne Moore, Robert Downey, Jr., Jack Lemmon, and Jennifer Jason Leigh-all giving fearless performances in what is one of Altman's most compassionate creations.
