Photo Archive: Brewster McCloud (1970)

Sometimes you just can't beat the best, so with apologies to Wikipedia, we're just going to have to bow down and reprint this sublime synopsis for the delectation of those who have yet to have the pleasure of Robert Altman's 1970 fairy-dusted fantasy, Brewster McCloud...

"Brewster McCloud is a 1970 movie, directed by Robert Altman, about a young recluse who lives in a fallout shelter of the Houston Astrodome, where he is building a pair of wings so he can fly. He is helped in this by his Fairy Godmother played by Sally Kellerman."

Lovely stuff, no? And after having recently put the boot into Altman's Wild West folly, Buffalo Bill and the Indians, we thought we'd balance the books with a dizzying clutch of stills from Brewster - a film memorably described by critic Artie Stanshall of the Houston Proclaimer as something akin to "... being force-fed velvet chicken-wire."
