I was a teenager when MASH came out. One of the great movies of the era.

I'm partial to The Player.

A truly innovative voice in film, he will be missed.

For all of the (justifiable) bellyaching over Scorsese not having an Oscar, it's equally ridiculous that Altman was not honoured. Prairie Home Companion was a fittingly wonderful note to go out on. RIP, Robert Altman

I wasn't particularly partial to his work, especially the stuff that got major recognition (i.e., M*A*S*H*), but he was a significant voice in film history. I did enjoy McCabe and Mrs. Miller, mostly because of his crazy inovative use of sound recording and mixing in it.

I'm not really with either group. It was good, there were some wonderful moments, but it dragged on way too long for that type of movie, and it got too serious at the end.
