Altman, Robert: Film Worldview–Elements

Among other achievements, Altman is known for his astute and sharp casting.

He tends to picks performers that are endowed with strong personalities, hoping they would be able to built and play their characters, based on their distinctive personas.

Actors love him because he encourages them not only to trust their instincts but also to trust each other.

His experimental method with actors often yields such spectacular results that we wants to see more of the characters they play; ironically, it’s often the loose script that restrains them and holds them in check.
