Given 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 Ron Mann to let the film turn into a loose, digressive –indeed, Altmanesque– jamboree of war stories and portable wisdom. But 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. Altman famously likened making films to building castles in the sand (and even named his production company Sandcastle 5). The waves of time, though, have little eroded Altman’s films, and it is the primary accomplishment of Altman to simply set them before us once again, side by side and rock solid. SF
