Brewster McCloud

One of Robert Altman's most charming exercises in cabaret humor and off-the-cuff modernism. Bud Cort is Brewster, a sullen sprite who lives in the basement of the Houston Astrodome, where he's constructing a pair of mechanical bird wings with the help of guardian angel Sally Kellerman. This 1970 feature is loose and simpleminded in a generally pleasing way, though the Felliniesque ending seems a bit of a betrayal. With the then-nascent Altman stock company in force: Michael Murphy, Shelley Duvall, Rene Auberjonois, and John Schuck.
