Abstract

"Robert Altman" is the name of the author metonymic with the variety of productive forces that intersect and disperse across the set of two dozen films bearing that name. It signifies numerous modes of discourse -- technological, industrial, societal, formal, psychological, academic--each of which authorizes a different "notional coherence" in the reading of these films.
