More Altman interviews. He’s always saying interesting things. What’s really cool is how he worked with his writers. Nashville for instance was simply based on a diary that Joan Tewkesbury made after spending a few days there. The random car crash in the beginning is right out of her diary…and the structure of the whole script really follows that drifting feeling of a diary…ST says so cool. Now she directs TV. Too bad she isn’t making more weird diaries that get turned into movies. Not that that is realistic now. In this video Altman discusses KANSAS CITY…more evidence in the interview of his open minded and collaborative approach to filmmaking…and his smart way of dealing with the industry in order to get his films financed.
