    Robert Altman dies at 81

    He died today of cancer complications.
    :'(
    Great American film director, and one of my personal favorites who will surely be missed, as will his terrific films. Incidently, his last film will now be A Prairie Home Companion, shot in St. Paul.

    Here's to you Bob...

    Rest in peace. 81 years, that's a good long life, not that it makes it any easier!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    RIP, Mr. Altman.

    Yeah, he was a great director - most notably remembered, I think, for doing the kind of movies HE wanted. He wasn't pigeonholed into any specific genre, he did things HIS way.

    Nashville
    The Player
    McCabe and Mrs. Miller
    The Gingerbread Man
    Gosford Park
    Short Cuts
    Dr. T and the Women
    Popeye
    Cookie's Fortune
    And, of course, M.A.S.H.

    Quite a resume of movies...
