During his lifetime and beyond, filmmaker Robert Altman achieved iconic auteur status for his films that visually chronicled the slippery zeitgeist of the "me" generation, all of which came to a head with his 1993 dramedy "Short Cuts." Based on the work of yet another cult figure in American intellectual history: Raymond Carver, the movie features an ensemble cast with the likes of Matthew Modine, Julianne Moore, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Robert Downey, Jr., Jack Lemmon, Andie MacDowell, Lily Tomlin, and Tom Waits — just to name a few. As a tribute to the late, great film director, the New Beverly Cinema presents a 20th anniversary screening of Altman's bite-sized morsels of the human condition all wrapped up in the tasty feast that is "Short Cuts."
