Robert Altman - RIP

There are directors and there are legends. Robert Altman is a textbook definition of the latter. His latest movie, A Prairie Home Companion serves as an apt final bow for him as it focuses on a radio show on its final broadcast. M*A*S*H, Short Cuts, Nashville, The Player elevated cinema and even his stumbles are fascinating in their own way (though I thought Gosford Park's acclaim was primarily due to the director's name and not for the actual picture).
A sad day in filmmaking, but dang - what a life...
