When I read the headline this afternoon, my heart skipped a beat. Over the last fifteen years, few filmmakers have meant more to me, or been a more personal face of American cinema to me. We have lost one of our vital voices.

I hadn't heard and my reaction was much the same as Beltmann's. I was looking forward to the potential of a well-deserved Oscar for Prairie Home with the onset of a weakening field.



Time to finally watch Nashville.

I still have a lot of Altman to catch up on, but I love Nashville. I even like Popeye.
