Film director Robert Altman has passed away
at the age of 81. His career was hit-and-miss — I love M*A*S*H, McCabe & Mrs. Miller, The Long Goodbye, Popeye, The Player
and Gosford Park
, but I was nearly comtaose with boredom after half an hour of 3 Women
— but I got the impression that fimmaking was, for him, a calling and not just a career.
Thank you, Mr. Altman. You’ll be missed.
