Epix Documentary Preview: Altman [VIDEO and PHOTOS]


Robert Altman was a maverick, an auteur, a rebel, an innovator, a storyteller. He wanted to bring realism to his projects, which kept getting him fired but also got him noticed. “Altmanesque” means different things to different people. It can be a certain style of realism that includes overlapping and sometimes murky dialogue. It can be an original, memorable story or characters. It can be a dark, humorous narrative featuring an ensemble. And it was often a combination of all that. His style has become iconic and this documentary explores and celebrates his fifty year journey as an important and influential filmmaker in the medium.

Altman synopsis, from Epix:

Ron Mann’s new documentary, Altman, is an in-depth look at the life and times of filmmaker Robert Altman (M*A*S*H, McCabe and Mrs. Miller, Nashville, The Player, Gosford Park and many more). While refusing to bow down to Hollywood’s conventions, or its executives, Altman’s unique style of filmmaking won him friends and enemies, earned him world-wide praise, and occasionally scathing criticism, and proved that it IS possible to make truly independent films.

Altman premieres Wednesday, August 8th at 8/7c on Epix.
