An interesting, if a little dry, look at Altman's filmography from Countdown-Nashville, and each film's place in examinations of genre. Definitely nice to get looks at The Long Goodbye and California Split, two Altman masterworks that don't get the attention they deserve in recent days. This is more of an academic film study than an accessible book for the casual film fan, so be aware.
