Director Spotlight For August


In August we’ve decided to get Robert Altman out of the way.   I say get out of the way, because his films are so good, we need to just get this one done and over with.

Actually, we’ve enjoyed each spotlight and have been very careful about our selections.  As the months go on there will be more diversity in our picks, but our brainstorming led to a short list that has led to Coppolas, Allens, and Altmans hogging the spotlight.  Once we get away from the shortlist, all bets are off (I’m looking at you Werner Herzog).

The list of films for August looks a little something like this:

August 5th:  M*A*S*H

Aug 12th: McCabe and Mrs. Miller

Aug 19th: The Gingerbread Man

Aug 26th: Gosford Park
