Beautiful Losers: Robert Altman’s Panoramic Cinema

27 Apr

Altman’s kaleidoscopic, humanist masterpiece connects a web of Raymond Carver stories to an astonishing array of superlative performances (Julianne Moore, Robert Downey Jr., Tim Robbins, Jack Lemmon, Lyle Lovett, Tom Waits, Lily Tomlin and many others).

MEMBERSHIPS: $29 - $24 FOR 3 WEEK MINI MEMBERSHIP. ANNUAL MEMBERSHIPS AVAILABLE FROM $135. MEMBERSHIP INCLUDES CINEMA ADMISSION.
  • One of the great LA films, Carver’s stories are riffed on to reveal the depths of despair at the heart of the American façade. “Altman’s return to his ecstatic anthology mode” (Jonathan Rosenbaum) matches the high-water mark of his 1970s career, Nashville. Joint winner of the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival.
