Story | Jun 21, 2014Given the who's-who of collaborators and acolytes of the late Robert Altman assembled for this feature-length tribute, it would have been all too easy for director Ron Mann to let the film turn into a loose, digressive -- indeed, Altmanesque -- jamboree of war stories and portable wisdom. But to great, stirring effect, "Altman" charts a different course, drawing on a wealth of existing material to tell the filmmaker's story largely in his own, brashly eloquent words, and through generous clips from his massive, admittedly uneven, always uncompromising filmography. The result captures Altman the artist and the man, the one inseparable from the other, about as well as any two-hour film could hope to do. The pic makes its broadcast debut on Epix Aug. 6, following its June 20 premiere as part of the UCLA Film and Television Archive's ongoing Altman retrospective.
