RIP Robert Altman.

You may have noticed that I've been neglecting my duties recently but I felt it necessary to pay tribute to the passing of a true Hollywood great: Robert Altman. Without question, cinema has lost one of its last auteurs and mavericks (he's one of the few actually worthy of that usually peurile title). I'm in no position to comment at length on his tremendous and varied and filmography; but he is survived by his third wife, five children and a daring legacy.



A daring legacy ... I was so upset when i heard this Monday that I was just a basket-case for the rest of the day, and I'm still not over the shock ... He will be sorely missed
