Unfortunately, the straightforward film doesn't probe deeply enough to reveal the creative psyche of the remarkable filmmaker Robert Altman, whose films didn't look or sound like those of any other director. [Full review in Japanese]
This ho-hum doc about the late, great American filmmaker Robert Altman is a disappointment.
This is most interesting when it explores the least-known periods in Altman's career.
Documentarian Ron Mann's affectionate tribute to the filmmaker Robert Altman ...
It's a tribute to Mann's film that it leads you from Altman's life back to his films, and makes you want to see them anew.
Gives due credit to an inspired and prodigious maverick while also showing how often reckless good luck guided his peripatetic way.
I can't help but feel that this friction-free portrait, with its paucity of context and sense that Altman's innovations occurred in a vacuum, does him something of a disservice.
A genial but scarcely probing documentary about the great director.
We never learn anything personal or troublesome about our subject, nor do we come across anyone with a bad word to say about him, which sadly leaves the film feeling uneven and distinctly unAltmanesque.
A depressingly conventional exploration of American cinema's most fearless rebel.
This hagiographic romp through Robert Altman's inspiring/exasperating career never gets beneath the surface of its fascinating subject.
A perfect introduction to a great American film-maker.
Robert Altman is a fascinating director who received training in the early days of television before becoming a director/writer/producer of feature films. This documentary about his life includes many clips from his films and many interviewees who worked with him. He was especially known for films with large ensemble casts and natural sounding overlapping dialogue, so there are an incredible number of well known celebrity faces who contribute anecdotes about Altman on and off set. A straightforward biographical documentary that is well made.
The most fascinating part of this documentary revolves around the early life of Robert Altman and his career prior to the breakthrough of M.A.S.H. His later career is perhaps too glossed over but this is nonetheless a fascinating look at a ground breaking director.
