Robert Altman - RIP

I just saw a report that director Robert Altman has died. Known for some of his films to have a large ensemble cast and his trademark "overlapping" dialogue which can be hard to watch and listen to but is, of course, much closer to what real life is like. He had a distinctive feel and a personality behind his films and you could say almost a slightly cynical, anarchist view to them.

I have seen some of his movies including MASH, The Player, The Long Goodbye, Gosford Park, California Split and Nashville but I consider Short Cuts to be the best.

Absolutely brilliant film, in my opinion.
