Robert Altman: A Shaper of The Boomer Brand

LOS ANGELES – The passing of Robert Altman will be mourned by many media professionals, particularly those whose interest in film imbued them with a taste for satire and careers with a political cant.

Altman was one of the few film directors whose work consistently crossed the intersection between popular and political culture.

Robert Altman's work chronicled the transformation of a generation – and built the foundation for a new cinematic language. Altman's films may not have been fully accessible for mass audiences, but his influence still reverberates across a spectrum of media ranging from network television to YouTube. He will be missed.
