Movie Review: Cookie's Fortune

Story: Robert Altman's (I am a big fan) homage to the deep South. Everyone is a character, divided into the dumb, the stupid, the slow, the dimwitted and the occasionally clever. Basically a family matriarch commits suicide, it is somewhat 'covered up' and then gets untangled. The rambling story lines get resolved in the last ten minutes, so pay attention.

Starring: Glenn Close (in her Garpest), Liv Tyler (a bit less pouty here), Julianne Moore (I don't know why she isn't in more films) and a whole bunch of other solid supporting characters.
