This isn't a tell-all doc about the iconic filmmaker: it's a love letter from his friends and family. With a terrific range of film clips, home movies, behind-the-scenes footage and never-seen stills, this movie explores how Robert Altman's work has forever changed the way Hollywood makes movies, simply because his inventive filmmaking style forced everyone else to try and keep up.
After getting his start directing industrial films in Kansas City, Altman made the jump to Hollywood in the late 1950s, annoying a range of studio executives with his preference for naturalistic, overlapping dialogue in television programmes. Then he made the jump to cinema and took the world by storm with M.A.S.H. In 1970, winning the Palme d'Or at Cannes and introducing the "Altmanesque" combination of earthy interaction, ensemble casts and political subtext. In his documentary, filmmaker Ron Mann cleverly asks many of Altman's actors to define the word Altmanesque, not as it relates to the movies but as it relates to the man himself.
Altman was a rare filmmaker who was loved by his casts and crews as well as the critics. Notoriously picky film journalist Pauline Kael famously wrote that "he can make film fireworks out of next to nothing", and this documentary demonstrates this with clips and backstage moments from his classics, ranging from McCabe and Mrs. Miller (1971), Buffalo Bill and the Indians (1976) and Popeye (1980) to The Player (1992), Short Cuts (1993) and Gosford Park (2001). The film's focus is on his movies, although it's narrated through personal interviews with Altman and his widow Kathryn Reed and features some superb footage of his sons. It also traces his ongoing health issues, from his heart transplant to his death from leukaemia in 2006. But there's little mention of his lifelong anti-war efforts or his controversial efforts to legalise marijuana.

The directors of 'Still Alice' have come forward to explain the serious heart that went into the film, as one of them was suffering a similar affliction to the main character.
After Julianne Moore won the Oscar for her performance in 'Still Alice', the film climbed back into the US box office top 10, just as it opens across Europe this weekend. Co-director Wash Westmoreland is amazed at how the film has connected with people. "When you're an independent filmmaker you always have a dream version of how things will go," he said. "You have to live within the dream because often the reality is usually too brutal to deal with! But this time the reality has turned out to be better than the dream."

Most amazing to Westmoreland and his partner, co-director Richard Glatzer, is how the film seems to be changing the perception of Alzheimer's. They credit much of this reaction to Moore's remarkably sensitive performance. "You know, we've always been huge fans of her work," Westmoreland said. "Every character she plays is completely different but yet realistic, whether it's Amber Waves, Sarah Palin or Cathy Whitaker. She has the ability to project intelligence, to be emotionally vulnerable and to act without words. I think in a lot of her movies, like 'Safe', she does a lot without speaking."
