R.I.P., Robt. Altman

Arguably the greatest living American filmmaker is no longer living. This means a lot, as have his films to me, most especially Nashville, which I think has a shot at the title of The Great American Film. But mostly, it means:

1. I get to make a weightier case for Martin Scorsese! Especially now that he's started making good movies again!

2. Stanley Kubrick has someone to argue with in Hell Heaven!

3. The latest issue of the High Hat is more relevant than ever! This is the first time we actually made a self-imposed deadline! Seriously, folks, I know I've flogged this issue extensively already, but there is no better time than right now to go read at least the top-notch Altman section. Twelve swell articles on a guy who did a hell of a lot for American film.
