One of the most enduring figures of the American New Wave era (New Hollywood), Robert Altman was one of Hollywood’s most non-conformist filmmakers. With a use of overlapping dialogue, a highly mobile camera and subversive attitude to the genres he tackled, Altman created a complex and dynamic body of work including the likes of M*A*S*H (1970), McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971), Nashville (1975) and The Player (1992), just to name a few. Following on the heels of his only horror film, Images (1972), the director took on the noir genre with an adaptation of Raymond Chandler’s The Long Goodbye. Kino had previously released the movie on Blu-ray – via a distribution deal with MGM – in 2015, but the label has revisited the movie for a brand new release.

I've seen it many times, both in the cinema and at home, so won't be buying this new edition but for anyone who hasn't seen it I strongly recommend you buy it as it's a marvellous film and essential for Robert Atman admirers. And in case you don't know SITTING BULL'S HISTORY LESSON ....
