Maverick. Auteur. Insurgent. Innovator. Storyteller. Rambler. Gambler. Mad man. Household man. Director. Artist. Robert Altman’s life and profession contained multitudes. This father of American impartial cinema left an indelible mark, not merely on the evolution of his artwork type, but in addition on the western zeitgeist. “Altman”, Canadian director Ron Mann’s new documentary, explores and celebrates the epic fifty-year redemptive journey of one of the vital essential and influential filmmakers within the historical past of the medium. With its use of uncommon interviews, consultant movie clips, archival pictures, and musings from his household and most recognizable collaborators, Mann’s Altman is a dynamic and heartfelt mediation on an artist whose expression, ardour and urge for food knew few bounds.
