I reserve the right to post this brief scene from Robert Altman‘s California Split (’74) every two or three years. What the hell — maybe someone hasn’t seen it. The scene depends on the viewer believing in George Segal‘s radical but completely convincing mood swing — in 92 seconds he goes from utter despair and near-depression to giddy, child-like hilarity. It’s one of his greatest all-time acting moments. Remember that Ryan Fleck and Anna Boden‘s Mississippi Grind is believed to be a loose re-imagining of Altman‘s film with Ryan Reynolds and Ben Mendelsohn in the lead roles. Grind also stars Sienna Miller, Analeigh Tipton and Alfre Woodard.
