I feel really sad about this news. This isn’t a film blog anymore (it never was really), but I can’t let this one pass without remark. I had to pay tribute to Robert Altman. I know he was old. I know he has had heart problems. But it’s still a real shock, and a huge blow to film-lovers everywhere.

I’m not sure I need to say anything else except thanks Robert for so many wonderful films, and post this list of some of his movies. Sure, there are some less-then-amazing ones here, but the consistent hight quality is self-evident. Cinema, and the world, has lost one of its greats.
