La Cinémathèque Française honors Robert Altman

The late American filmmaker Robert Altman is the subject of a cinematic retrospective at Paris’ La Cinémathèque Française through March 12, 2012.  45+ films and several  television shows directed by Altman over the span of 6 decades will screen at this right-bank enclave for cinephiles, creating a holistic vision of the ‘naturalist’ director’s oeuvre from his beginnings as a director on Alfred Hitchcock Presents in the late 50s to his much-acclaimed 2001 film Gosford Park.  For those looking to escape the cold, wet streets of Paris and delve into the ensemble casts and occasional misanthropy that weave a common thread through Altman’s oeuvre, the salles of the cinémathèque may be the perfect distraction.  Below, a handful of the films that will screen in the coming weeks, accompanied by links to the program.

The Delinquents, 1957

Thieves Like Us, 1974

Popeye, 1980

That Cold Day in the Park, 1973-74
