The Company directed by Robert Altman
The (usually) weekly round up of reviews, interviews, and more about A/V materials, usually those that have been undeservedly overlooked (some deservedly, some not overlooked at all in some cases, but those write-ups need  to have some larger interest to make this not exactly exclusive list...usually!)

And well done not he totally unexpected Altman still - bet you sweated over that one :)

Jack Seabrook said...

Thanks for the link, Todd.

Todd Mason said...

Not at all, Sergio...THE COMPANY is probably my favorite among his often undervalued films. Though I could've dug a little deeper into the stills from it...thanks.

And thank you, Jack.
