RIP. Haven't seen many either. He was due to be in Tarantino's next one, but apparently nothing had been shot

Of what I've seen of his, Mystery, Alaska is probably my favorite. Hugely underrated film!

Sad news, but I don't know if any of his films really mattered to me beyond Boogie Nights, Deliverance and (has everybody seen this one?) Breaking In.

I'm not too familiar with Mystery, Alaska...maybe I should give it a try.

Let's not forget The Longest Yard (the original, not the Adam Sandler porno remake). I might call it the best football movie ever (competition includes North Dallas Forty and dark horse pick The Slaughter Rule).

And he was perfectly slimy in Citizen Ruth.

Familiar face if you keep up with the bigger arthouse dramas from Japan. She's in Koreeda's Shoplifters, also Kawase's Sweet Bean. Sadly she was still active, so that means it's an actual loss to the film community.

It's not really a surprise though, since this article was written a couple of month ago. Pretty interesting read, pretty interesting woman:

I just happened to read yesterday that Marceline Loridan-Ivens, wife of Joris Ivens, died last week at the age of 90. She was involved in the production of some of her husband's famed documentaries ('17th Parallel: Vietnam in War', 'How Yukong Moved the Mountains') and was a survivor of Nazi concentration camps. Not a lady whose life and work I had been all that aware of unfortunately but a notable passing.

Kim Larsen

Danish singer/songwriter with a few movie credits to his name. Particularly Midt om natten from 1984 is an enjoyable watch.

I happened to throw a Gasolin' CD on the stereo yesterday. So eerie, I haven't listened to them in a long time. Greatest ever Danish rock band. I suppose he wasn't all that productive in his later years, but he was a force in Danish popular culture for decades, since the late sixties. I never saw him live, but I did manage to catch a glimpse of him a couple of times when we lived in the same city in the nineties. RIP you ol'e nonconformist.

I don't know if it made it outside the UK?

Never heard of Hayes. And not very familiar with Aznavour either though at least I knew the name and that he was a French singer. But then I'm American, we don't care about anything outside of our borders. I heard that some people speak something that's not English once but I presume that's just a rumor started by the liberal media?

I was being slightly facetious. Geoffrey is more of a cult figure for UK folk who grew up in 80s/90s.

Screenwriter Audrey Welles passes at 58, the day her latest film The Hate U Give premieres in limited release (goes wide on the 19th). Very untimely. RIP.

https://pagesix.com/2018/10/05/the-hate ... ead-at-58/

And slightly OT, but if anyone is concerned about the alarmingly low rating for The Hate U Give on IMDB, don't fret - being that it's a film that deals with largely racial issues and comes at them from the perspective of black youths, the lovely troll factories of the web no doubt are trying to tank its score before anyone gets to see it. Happens all the time (I recall 2014's MLK bio Selma have a measly 4.1/10 before it went wide).

Yeah you can't take IMDb ratings on anything seriously, but in particular anything that is seen as "black" or "feminist" is going to get killed. Nor surprise there, neither that site nor Amazon has ever cared even slightly about dealing with trolling, racism, sexism or hatred in general. "Some of my best customers are Nazis" would be a good slogan for Bezos.

OH and back to the subject at hand (unfortunately):

Will Vinton, claymation animator, died at 70 this week. He directed one solo feature, The Adventures of Mark Twain, lots of animated segments in other features and TV, but is probably best known to Americans of my generation for the California Raisins commercials.

Two big ones within the last 40 hours:

Douglas Rain, best known as the voice of Hal 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey, though also a prolific actor for many years after, passes at age 90.

And just announced this afternoon... Stan Lee, dead at 95.

RIP to both of these major genre staples of the last half-century.

William Goldman, one of the all-time most successful Hollywood screenwriters, with Oscars for his scripts for All the President's Men and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid and other notable works including Marathon Man, Harper and The Stepford Wives, has died at 87. While his work in the thriller-crime-mystery area probably makes up the bulk of his work, and certainly of his most famous work, at this point he may well be best known for a little children's fantasy-satire that got turned into this 1987 film:

I love Nicolas Roeg's early stuff, he was on the way to become an all-time great, then it got "quiet". Seen his 5 first, all great, with Walkabout and The Man Who Fell To Earth being amongst my favorite films. I also saw Insignificance, which was fun and cute, but not up to his earlier work. Not heard anything good about his later films, but then I haven't heard much at all about his later films. A sad loss all the same, and I'd love to give another film of his a chance in his memory. Any recommendations?

He's a really interesting director, yeah. The video tribute here made me keen to revisit his films, although I don't agree with the claim at the end that "no British director could match his visual imagination". I'd name quite a few before Roeg, on that front, and argue that Roeg primarily used editing and tone to create a distinct style. Admittedly it's been ages since I saw any of his stuff but that's more what stands out in my mind.

I remember him most from Heist, which is a pretty bad movie. But I also saw him live on stage, and he was great.
