Lent: Part 8

Quintet (1979) – If I were a movie producer in the late ’70s, and Robert Altman came to me and said, “I want to make a post-apocalyptic sci-fi movie set in the final ice age, where packs of adorable doggies vicious wild dogs feed on the corpses of the dead. We have Paul Newman.” I would have said, “Go home, Robert Altman, you are drunk.”

One begins to understand why this was bundled with MASH and two other Altman movies nobody has ever heard of.

      It’s rattling around in the Robert Altman box set on the bookshelf. Be prepared for a dragging story and people talking over each other.
