Kansas City’s own Robert Altman died today. Since he was KC’s contribution to film history, and he was one of the greatest American film directors ever, I feel like I should post about him.
Everyone and their dog will list MASH, The Player, Short Cuts, Gosford Park, and Nashville as their favorite Altman movies. My favorite of his has always been Cookie’s Fortune – I’ve recommended it to tons of people and I’ve never heard a negative word about it.
I think I’ll fire that sucker up on DVD tonight. Rest in peace, Bob.
