oh, you haven't lived till you've seen McCabe & Mrs. Miller on the big screen... on weed!  but seriously, seeing it projected was unbelievable.

Thieves Like Us kinda sucks.  i'll take They Live By Night over it (and most other love-on-the-run films) anyday.

All 'Hands' on for Altman pic
Source: Hollywood Reporter

Robert Altman, whose "A Prairie Home Companion" was released by Picturehouse, is close to teaming with the distributor again for his next project.

Altman and writer Stephen Harrigan are developing a script inspired by the events depicted in S.R. Bindler's 1997 documentary "Hands on a Hard Body: The Documentary," which recounted a Texas endurance contest that offered a new Nissan Hardbody truck as the prize.

The last person left standing with a hand on the truck got to take it home. Altman has wanted to direct the project for years and now says it will be his next film. He compares it to Sydney Pollack's 1969 film "They Shoot Horses, Don't They?" which centered on a marathon dance contest.

Harrigan, whose credits include such telefilms as Hallmark Entertainment's "The Colt" and Channel 4/Lifetime's "Widow on the Hill," is at work on the screenplay, and Altman has begun talking to such actors as Billy Bob Thornton and Hilary Swank, though cast availability when the film is ready to shoot will be a factor.

"He can get almost anybody," one source close to the production said. When the script is finished, it likely is to be funded by HBO International's Charles Schrager and greenlighted by Picturehouse president Bob Berney. Altman hopes to start production in January with a $10 million budget.

Film Director Robert Altman Dies
Film Director Robert Altman Has Died at a Los Angeles Hospital, According to a Spokesman

LOS ANGELES Nov 21, 2006 (AP)— Robert Altman, the caustic and irreverent satirist behind "MASH," "Nashville" and "The Player" who made a career out of bucking Hollywood management and story conventions, died at a Los Angeles Hospital, his Sandcastle 5 Productions Company said Tuesday. He was 81.

The director died Monday night, Joshua Astrachan, a producer at Altman's Sandcastle 5 Productions in New York City, told The Associated Press.

The cause of death wasn't disclosed. A news release was expected later in the day, Astrachan said.

Very sad news, though I'm glad he lived to such an old age and was regularly making films up to the end of his life.

I just found out about Altman less than a minute ago. That's terrible!!! I have one of those sinking feelings....there's never going to be another Robert Altman film ever again. :( I hate those feelings.

R.I.P.


What's weird was that I was just thinking about his Golden Globe acceptance speech this morning...I wanted to find a transcript, or something. Damnit.
