Audience Reviews for Altman

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.
