Let's let Altman rest in peace. He died quite recently and his body of work has already entered Film Parnassus. And let's not confuse a person with his work, let alone with one piece of his work. By playing Dante in this selective fashion, you could condemn Beethoven to a special circle for having written Wellington's Victory, a dreadful work, or Mozart, for having written some of those pieces where he was just spinning his wheels, or any writer who wrote a bad book.
