Altman merges psychology with the supernatural in a fluid descent into the deadly illusions and dark sexual visions of a lonely woman, where the blurry boundaries between fantasy and reality conjure up a seductive movie riddle.

The multiplicity of the female psyche, its unexpected manifestations and its unexplored aspects - a recurring theme in Robert Altman's oeuvre, permeating some of him most important films (most notably "3 Women") - turns into a complicated puzzle in "Images".

Inspired by Susannah York's tour de force (Best Actress at the Cannes Film Festival), the magical Irish scenery where the movie was shot, horror genre conventions, John Williams' Oscar-nominated score and Vilmos Zsigmond's brilliantly innovative cinematography, Altman merges psychology with the supernatural in a fluid descent into the deadly illusions and dark sexual visions of a lonely woman, where the blurry boundaries between fantasy and reality conjure up a seductive movie riddle.

      Brewster McCloud

      Brewster McCloud

      A provocative and often surrealist satire of American society, Brewster McCloud is a surprising variation on the Icarus myth brimming with eccentricity and black humor, told as a coming-of-age story about sexual awakening.

      M*A*S*H

      M*A*S*H

      Robert Altman conjures up a naughty anti-military proposition through the eyes of a medical team and their rather hilarious methods of dealing with the everyday horrors around them, while stationed at a Mobile Army Surgical Hospital in the Korean War.

      McCabe and Mrs Miller

      McCabe and Mrs Miller

      In the early 1900s, in a small town on the Western border that's transitioning into urbanity, an enigmatic man with an entreprenurial spirit and a lovesick hooker build their version of the American Dream on the foundations of a whorehouse, while the local organized interests decide they want a part of the action.

      Thieves Like Us

      Thieves Like Us

      California Split

      California Split

      Making his way through the organized chaos of layered dialogues, a noisy score and a largely improvised script - not to mention the performances - Altman builds a precious behavioral comedy for the ages.
