This Month’s Genre…
This month’s genre is, “The Films of Robert Altman: Part I”
Some filmmakers are icons, pinnacles of cinematic genius. Robert Altman is one of those filmmakers.
This month Reel Club will devout all five Sundays to some of Altman’s most celebrated films. Unlike the typical approach, Reel Club will not approach the films chronologically, instead starting with the 1977 cerebral drama 3 Women. From there, a step back to Nashville. Then, one of Altman’s later films, Gosford Park. From there, Short Cuts. Finally, the month will conclude with Come Back to the Five and Dime, which is being released on DVD this month.
Hopefully Altman fans, like me, will enjoy, and for those unfamiliar with Altman’s work, there is no time like the present to experience a body of work by one of the true icons of 20th century filmmaking.
