A Prairie Home Companion: films reviewed in 50 words-ish

A wonderfully romantic portrayal of a dinosaur of a show – a pre-television radio variety – stumbling to a dignified extinction. Admire GK’s unflappable professionalism (and the real Keillor’s triumph), laugh at the advertising and feel strangely warm inside. A worthy close to Altman’s career; it’s as if the angel comes for him.
A delightful 10 out of 10.
Director: Robert Altman……Starring: Garrison Keillor……Kevin Kline……Meryl Streep……Woody Harrelson……Lindsay Lohan
Pan’s Labyrinth (El Laberinto del Fauno)……Nick Broomfield’s Ghosts
