3 things about Robert Altman’s A PERFECT COUPLE

A Perfect Couple [1979]

1. “I don’t think you two should be kissing while I’m suturing.”
2. A planter in the shape of a shoe. Brown suede.
3. He pops an olive into her mouth, and then waits. She spits out the pit into the palm of his hand.

I think I get this now. It’s a precursor to both Modern Romance and Punch-Drunk Love. And, like most of his stuff, a movie only Altman could make. Who else would cast Paul Dooley as a romantic lead?
