Film director Robert Altman dies

BBC News article

I thought he was a fantastic director who always stayed just outside the mainstream. He never won a Best Director Oscar but they gave him the honorary award this year.

MASH, Nashville, The Player and Gosford Park are personal favorites. Anyone else a fan of Altman?

I liked Altman a lot. My favorite was "Dr. T and the Women."

Re: Film director Robert Altman dies

That sucks!!!

I love his work, especially MASH, The Player and Short Cuts.

and Gosford Park shows that he still had plenty of great films in him.

This is a major loss to my industry.

Re: Film director Robert Altman dies

I guess this was expected as he wasn't very young, and the studio had P.T. Anderson as the back-up director of A Prairie Home Companion in case there were any complications with Robert. Still, I'm finding it a bit shocking and very sad. RIP.

Re: Film director Robert Altman dies

He looked like he was in good health, but I guess that can change fast. Just a couple of days ago I watched his film "A Wedding" which is probably one of his lesser known and underrated. Other than that, he is a massive talent that will be hugely missed!

RIP.

I never understood the movies of his that I saw yet I found myself drawn to watching them anyway.

Re: Film director Robert Altman dies

Paul really worships Robert, it's clear to see Altman's style in Magnolia or Boogie Nights

This will be another black point in the Accademy, he should have won at least one of these golden eunucs

Truth be told, I always found he made a lot of quite good films but never a great one.

Re: Film director Robert Altman dies

Altman was beloved by the actors he directed over the years. That's probably a more meaningful tribute than an Oscar.
