Michael Glover Smith’s review published on Letterboxd:
The fact that POPEYE has an average Letterboxd user rating of only 2.7/5 is all the proof you need that we are living in a dark, unenlightened era. This is one of Robert Altman’s finest achievements, nearly as great as MCCABE AND MRS. MILLER (to which it serves as a companion piece). It is also one of the best comic book movies, one of the best post-studio system musicals (Nilsson’s soundtrack features one banger after another), and it has one of the few bearable Robin Williams screen performances. God will always bless Sweethaven!
