Has Robert Altman really been gone three years already?

Fortunately, the director’s legacy will live on with a collection of movies that could only have been attributed to him: M.A.S.H., Nashville and Short Cuts perhaps among the most notable.

For a true appreciation of the man behind the camera, check out Robert Altman: The Oral Biography

Altman

The New York Times has a detailed review of Mitchell Zuckoff’s fantastic new study of what drove this great auteur.

And go fire up the Netflix account to catch up on some of the great catalog of Altman films that you may have missed the first time.  Nobody will ever again make the movies like he did.
