Random Movie Talk, Louis the XIVth Edition

The 2D version is finally being released here next week. Not sure which version, but I've held off torrents and dodgy Chinese DVDs to see it first in the cinema.

Edit- US version apparently. Did people round here have a preference last year?

Where should I go next on my Altman journey? I love this guy. Every film he does feels totally unique; his range as a director is very impressive, doubly so considering the consistent quality across a number of genres (neo-noir, western, suspense, etc.).

The Long Goodbye is staggeringly good.

But I think LM should watch Nashville next; it's an earlier, important work and later titles should be viewed in the context of its effect on Altman's career and American cinema in general.

After that, Short Cuts is a must-see as well.
Short Cuts is incredible on its own, but seeing it as a primer after being more familiar with P.T. Anderson really helps.

Brewster McCloud is a blast. You can stream a high-quality version on the Warner Archive service. While you're there, break off into a '70s buddy cop tangent for Freebie and the Bean. James Caan & Alan Arkin lay waste to San Francisco in the most anarchic way possible - orgies of car crashes and destruction on the level of The Blues Brothers.

Oh, and 3 Women rules.

During that Altman convo, did I remember to mention how awesome Thieves Like Us is?

Freebie And The Bean is so irreverent, so un-PC, so fucking good.

Same goes for Richard Rush's Getting Straight -- it's the ultimate, hammy, boisterous Elliott Gould performance.

Also, happy birthday Brian De Palma:

I've seen that too, dude. YOU CAN'T STUMP ME.

Sharing this in case you haven't read it before:

The film did well commercially and was deemed by Swedish director Ingmar Bergman to be the "best American film of the decade."

So bizarre.

And I'm going to assume you've seen The Stunt Man.

Awesome, thanks! Only a dollar more than what I was paying, too.

There were a lot of things I was loathe to leave behind, in Indiana, but the drive-in theater was one of the hardest. A really small (one screen) little place, but they kept the authentic feel of the experience riding high. I loved it.
