Robert Altman 1972

I had been on a major hot streak of seeing awesome movies that I loved, when MADELEINE slowed me down and IMAGES stopped me dead in my tracks.  But I ain’t mad at you, Robert Altman – you were one of my favorite all time directors and you’re entitled to go off the deep end from time to time.  IMAGES is about a woman on the verge of a schizophrenic breakdown; it employs several filmmaking techniques to explore the idea of conflicting realities and the onset of madness. The ideas are all good, but the whole thing didn’t really come together for me, mainly because I didn’t connect to any of the characters – least of all to Cathryn the heroine of the story.
