Robert Forster, 1941-2019
He may have looked like your high school gym teacher, but Robert Forster was anything but uptight. Forster carved out a career playing complicated, stoic figures in the 1969 counterculture classic Medium Cool, Tarantino's Jackie Brown, and as Marlon Brando's object of desire in Reflections in a Golden Eye.
Staff Pick of the Day
Directed by Nuri Bilge Ceylan
A murder investigation in rural Turkey gets off to a slow start in Nuri Bilge Ceylan's intimate crime drama. Beginning with a painstaking search for a body in the wilderness, we get to know each of the members of the police convoy as they bicker about varieties of yogurt, present each other with hypothetical situations, and inch their way back towards the city center.
