Brewster McCloud

OK, what now?

Helping launch the ’70s — a golden era of filmmaking — Robert Altman delivers a strange ode to a bird-brained boy living life in the bowels of the Houston Astrodome.

Looking like a mashup of Harry Potter and Waldo, at least in the pic above, our “hero” is a possible murderer who yearns to fly free like his avian friends.

Down on Earth, he can shake tailfeathers with a slinky Shelly Duvall, yet he remains fixated on building a set of mechanical wings and taking flight, with deadly results.

A boy’s gotta do what a boy’s gotta do.
