Reviews

Gerestaureerde komedie uit 1969 van Robert Altman en voorloper van de 11 jaar lopende televisieserie. Met Donald Sutherland, Elliott Gould e.v.a. Om de verschrikkingen van elke dag in een mobiel veldhospitaal tijdens de oorlog in Korea het hoofd te kunnen bieden, ontwikkelt een aantal legerartsen een krankzinnige levensstijl.

Behalve Altman's commentaar bevat de special edition meer informatie over M*A*S*H: drie mini-documentaires en een zogeheten Backstory, die elkaar op sommige punten overlappen.'
