"Mr. Altman makes movies the way other men go on binges — with an abandon that sometimes gets the better of him — and which should be preserved and protected."—Vincent Canby, The New York Times
Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on The Long Goodbye here.
Neo-noir film based on Raymond Chandler's 1953 novel of the same name. The screenplay was written by Leigh Brackett, who co-wrote the screenplay for The Big Sleep in 1946.

Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on McCabe & Mrs. Miller here.
Musical score composed by Leonard Cohen!
This unorthodox dream western by Robert Altman may be the most radically beautiful film to come out of the New American Cinema. It stars Warren Beatty and Julie Christie as two newcomers to the raw Pacific Northwest.
Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on 3 Women here.
This dreamlike masterpiece from Robert Altman careens from the humorous to the chilling to the surreal, resulting in one of the most unusual and compelling films of the 1970s.
Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on Nashville here.
Critically acclaimed and often included on “best films” lists, Robert Altman’s biting satire is both brilliantly subtle and epic in scale.
Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on Secret Honor here.
Based on the original play by Donald Freed and Arnold M. Stone, and starring Philip Baker Hall in a tour de force solo performance, Robert Altman’s "Secret Honor" is a searing interrogation of the Nixon mystique and an audacious depiction of unchecked paranoia.
Read curator Tova Gannana's essay on The Player here.
Robert Altman has not really been away. Yet his new Hollywood satire titled "The Player" is so entertaining, so flip and so genially irreverent that it seems to announce the return of the great gregarious film maker whose "Nashville" remains one of the classics of the 1970's.
