Description
Maverick. Auteur. Rebel. Innovator. Storyteller. Rambler. Gambler. Mad man. Family man. Director. Artist. Robert Altmanʼs life and career contained multitudes. This father of American independent cinema left an indelible mark, not merely on the evolution of his art form, but also on the western zeitgeist. ALTMAN, Canadian director Ron Mannʼs new documentary, explores and celebrates the epic fifty-year redemptive journey of one of the most important and influential filmmakers in the history of the medium. The very term "Altmanesque" has come to denote a cinematic style characterized by dark humor, chaotic choreography, overlapping and sometimes murky dialogue, multi-layered storylines, iconoclastic characters, omniscient cinematography, and a seat-of-the-pants ensemble approach to imagining and crafting a film. With the late director himself acting as guide, ALTMAN takes the audience on an expansive and revelatory road trip through the highs and lows of this uncompromising visionaryʼs life and career. With its use of rare interviews, representative film clips, archival images, and musings from his family and most recognizable collaborators, Mannʼs ALTMAN is a dynamic and heartfelt mediation on an artist whose expression, passion and appetite knew few bounds.
