Quotes

Kathryn Reed: David Brown, the Producer, told Bob that he had a project that Bob was born to direct, because it struck everything that was wrong with Hollywood. And it was true. Nobody but Bob could have pulled off "The Player" the way he did. It gave him the chance to crucify forever Hollywood's entire way of making movies.

A look at the life and work of American filmmaker Robert Altman.

For anyone who loves film and its history, this is a must-see documentary. The career of Robert Altman spanned many decades and he worked with just about anyone who was anyone, making some of the greatest films of all time. Some duds, too, but that will happen.

Rather than just talking to a handful of people about their memories, this mixes in plenty of home footage, Altman's own memories, and those of his wife. While his career could fit into a much longer film, for the time frame allotted they did a great job covering his whole life and leaving us wanting more rather than opening up the possibility we could get bored.
