Robert Altman

altman.jpgRobert Altman died today. Sad news.

I’m glad the last movie of his that I saw was A Prarie Home Companion– which had a peculiar charm and otherworldliness – and not Gosford Park which was incredibly boring and reminded me of Scorcese‘s movies with its intense focus on period details and insufficient focus on anything of interest. Whatever I think of his individual films, there is no doubt that he was a true auteur and seminal director. A pioneer of the now-ubiquitous sprawling cast and multiple storyline movie, he will be missed.
