Lady P is joined by Patrick McGilligan, author of Robert Altman Jumping Off the Cliff, who has returned to the podcast to discuss the musically and politically charged film Nashville. However with Nashville being the only Robert Altman film on the list, they can’t resist diving into the rest of Altman’s long, eclectic, and magnificent career. Pat talks about his relationship with Altman’s films, and what Altman was like in person. They look at Altman’s visual style, his unique soundscapes, and even some of the costume in his films. They consider if Nashville is worthy of its 73rd spot on the Sight and Sound list, and ponder why there aren’t other Altman films talking over it on the list as well.
