Oh no, no, no

Robert Altman died.

I knew he was in really poor health but still....we lost a good one. He directed some of my all-time favorite films: McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Nashville, The Player, Short Cuts.....

that's so sad, i don't always like his films but i really respect him as an artist, he always seemed like a good guy

which ones didn't you like? I remember not really caring for Popeye. Dr T and the Women STUNK TO HIGH HEAVEN. Do you know I've never seen MASH?

i was thinking of dr t, and i appreciated gosford park but i don't know if i can honestly say that i liked it. i need to see nashville and mccabe and mrs miller. and now that i think on it i've only seen pieces of mash.

and, since she is my mortal enemy, i take great offense at the casting of andie macdowell in short cuts. why? why would you do such a thing?

Hahahaha. I feel exactly the same way about Andie Macdowell. She makes me cringe.
