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 Peter Strickland
Director Peter Strickland certainly had his style locked in well before this year's festival favorite In Fabric. Using the eerie, deliberate unreality of giallo as a starting point, his 2014 feature focuses on two women whose elaborate and committed master and servant roleplay begins to take a toll on their relationship.
