Mann On Altman

2014-07-25 16.33.28 (3)In this week’s NOW, I talk to Ron Mann about his new documentary Altman, which compresses the life and career of Robert Altman into an hour and a half with surprising clarity.

(It’s opening later this fall, but there’s a special screening tomorrow night at the Lightbox as a teaser for the Altman retrospective that opens next week, and Ron and Kathryn Reed Altman will be there. So, you know, you might want to catch it.)

I also contribute some movie options to this month’s edition of our Hot Summer Guide — regrettably filing before I had the chance to see John Michael McDonough’s Calvary, more’s the pity —  and there’s also the thing about Caplansky’s, which you may have read yesterday. But if you haven’t, do check it out. People seem to like it.
