The Death of Robert Altman

Robert AltmanThe film world, and in particular, American cinema, has lost a giant.  Robert Altman died yesterday at the age of 81, leaving behind a huge, and mostly wonderful, body of work.  Like many self-proclaimed movie buffs, I enjoyed Altman’s films and looked forward to their releases.  My favorite Altman films include:  Short Cuts, Nashville, M*A*S*H, and Cookie’s Fortune.  Others will offer more knowledgeable and relevant tributes to Altman’s life, but I just want to say that I am saddened that the world has lost this film-making great.  I offer my prayers for him and his family and friends.
