Larry Karaszewski on

Brewster McCloud

Released 1970
Distributor MGM

Robert Altman followed up the sleeper success of M*A*S*H with an off-kilter avian fantasy set inside the Houston Astrodome by the writer of Skiddoo! It’s a nascent gathering of many of the principal talents who would populate Altman’s triumphs and tragedies over the next decades. Shelley Duvall’s post-barfing kissing scene is a highlight.
