With its fascinating morally ambiguous characters, evocative cinematography by the great Vilmos Zsigmond, and haunting use of Leonard Cohen songs, Robert Altman’s McCabe and Mrs Miller brilliantly reframed the entrenched values of the Western genre.

'They say that great actors are never knowingly caught acting; Altman's best movies are similarly effortless - experiences to be lived in, rather than simply watched' - Colin Kennedy, Empire
