American film director Robert Altman has died. I reviewed his A Prairie Home Companion a few weeks back and have followed Altman's films for more than 30 years - a more complete review of some of his best films is here. Tributes to the cantankerous old man are here, here and here.
Altman is one of the greats of modern cinema. II'll miss those waits until his next movie is released. Who in America could ever replace him?
