“The greatest films are the ones that leave you not able to explain, but you know that you have experienced something special.” — Robert Altman

It’s his birthday today.

One of my favorite film-makers, but I haven’t written all that much about him. I love my friend Dan Callahan’s piece on Prairie Home Companion.

I did write the booklet essay for the Arrow Films release of Gosford Park, which I re-printed on my site.

Thank you so much for stopping by. If you like what I do, and if you feel inclined to support my work, here’s a link to my Venmo account. And I’ve launched a Substack, Sheila Variations 2.0, if you’d like to subscribe.
