So many wonderful films!

A still from the first Altman film I ever saw: McCabe & Mrs Miller. (& incidentally, one of the first "R" rating films shown in Oz.):

I loved it! Moody, haunting, meandering & beautiful to the eye. And Leonard's melancholy music, too!
It remains a favourite to this day.

No other Altman fans out there? This surprises me.

There's an earlier thread somewhere.

Just saw "A Prairie Home Companion" the other day.
