Did what it was supposed to do
16 March 2017 | by (Taichung, Taiwan) – See all my reviews

I loved this documentary because it accomplished its mission. It reminded you of what Robert Altman was all about. His life work can be summed up thus: I'm not making movies to narc you out. I'm not making movies so you can forget your pain. I'm telling stories of passionate people, heroes and failures, who just might clue you in to cutting a path toward your own redemption.

I cried over and over as I watched it. It was touching and moving and an inspiration. It also happened to summarize much of the backdrop to my own life as a moviegoer.

Altman's story is a good one, and this flick tells it.
