Dir. Robert Altman. 1980, 114 mins. DCP. With Robin Williams, Shelley Duvall, Ray Watson. A large-scale musical about the cartoon character Popeye seemed like an odd choice for director Robert Altman, his trademark messy realism an unlikely fit for the stylization of a comic book. Yet the film has stood the test of time, and is now regarded not only as one of Altman’s neglected gems, but also as one of Robin Williams’s most brilliant screen performances.
