There's no television where I'm staying in London, and the papers are fixed on some Russian spy being poisoned, so I just found out now that Robert Altman passed away yesterday.
It's a great loss to Cinema, and I really hope he gets at least a posthumous nomination for the incredibly entertaining A Prairie Home Companion this year at Oscar.
If you're in need of an Altman brush up, here are my all time favorite of his in absolutely no particular order except the first one, which was his masterpiece....
• THE PLAYER
• BREWSTER McCLOUD
• SHORT CUTS
