So happy to see Robert Forster present himself to EL CAMINO today, so devastated 39; hear that he's gone. Such a presence assured, imposing and dominant, and someone who has survived a long period of fallow for a rise in power at the end of career. The movies were always better to have it.

. For those who do not know his work, Robert Forster has essentially two careers: pre-Tarantino and post-Tarantino. They were both great. He could just sigh and convey a complicated emotion. He could just watch and succeed in letting you feel that wave of emotion for his character. https://t.co/W3ejc54Qmb
