Tributes have poured in for director Robert Altman, who died on Monday from complications related to cancer.
“Bob‘s restless spirit has moved on. I have to say, when I spoke with him last week, he seemed impatient for the future. He still had the generous, optimistic appetite for the next thing, and we planned the next film, laughing in anticipation of the laughs we’d have.”
“He understood and could express that uniquely American shape-shifting goofiness more than anyone. He was the deepest ocean and the lightest feather at the same time. We all loved him so much.”
Kevin Spacey, who put on an Altman-directed production of Arthur Miller play Resurrection Blues at the London theatre he is artistic director of, says, “Robert Altman was a truly unique director and an extraordinary man.
“We are all saddened by this news and send our condolences to his wife Kathryn and family.”
