Robert Altman has died. He was 81.
Of all his films—titles like M*A*S*H and Nashville and McCabe & Mrs. Miller (not to mention The Player, Short Cuts, and California Split [and Kansas City, Gosford Park, and the criminally underrated Popeye])—it’s his version of Raymond Chandler’s The Long Goodbye, featuring a genius performance from Elliott Gould as Philip Marlowe, that remains my favorite. I’ll be watching it tonight.
