    Yes, quite a canon indeed. Thinking about it...one thing I love about Altman is that his movies aren't easily quotable. They're not movies with the memorable punchlines or dialogue that you'll find...

    Yeah, Johann, it's heady stuff.

    Another "overlooked" Altman film to check out: O.C. and Stiggs. Altman was hired to make an 80's teen film (whose idea was that?), and the end result is a...

    Robert Altman

    Robert Altman died today. He was a truly an "independent" and original filmmaker. If you haven't done so already, take the time to get reaquainted with such films as "Nashville", "McCabe & Mrs....

    True, Freewheelin' Bob Dylan isn't entirely a "protest song" album, but five protest songs on that album sure beats the zero found on his first two "electric" albums, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde...

    This was one of the most intriguing aspects of the film to me. Dylan was a "protest singer" early in his musical career, but he was never particularly political on specific subjects. It was only...

    I'm glad you've formed a more positive opinion of this film now. It seems to be a film about which people have strong reactions either way. On another thread here, Johann tears it apart. My...

    So apparently Miami doesn't have any "art house" movie theaters, other than the Cosford? That's surprising. Houston's got a couple from the...
