RIP, always forget he was so young, mostly because I still find it inconceivable that he made The Conformist when he was in his frigging 20s.

And now Bernardo Bertolucci has died, aged 77.
Terrible news, I kept hoping he would do at least one more mini-comeback. He was one of the most important directors for me when I first got into film, and The Conformist is still one of my all-time favorite film - even a candidate for my top 10.

well, no surprise with either of those - BB was in poor health for a while and Roeg was 90. Two directors I've regularly thought of sampling more from, in both cases I've seen several (but not all) of their major works, but not for years and years, and while I see some genius I'm not yet personally taken with either, overall. No films from either in my overall top list and neither director is on my favorite directors list, but I think that's more due to my own neglect than anything else. Have wanted to rewatch Il conformista and The Last Emperor for a long time, and Don't Look Now. At the moment Performance is probably my favorite film from either though that too demands another viewing and should have gotten one right after I saw it the first time, quite the mindfuck.

Let's just hope bad news doesn't come in threes this time.

Sad to hear about both Roeg and Bertolucci, each made one film which count among my absolute favourites (Don't Look Now & The Conformist) and numerous other interesting ones besides.

New Zealand director Geoff Murphy has died at 80. He started out his career in his native country, making films such as Utu and The Quiet Earth, probably his two best-known works, before succumbing to the Hollywood lure for a while where his credits include films such as Young Guns 2, Freejack and Under Siege 2, but he eventually returned to NZ to do second-unit work on The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

I've seen only two of his movies. Under Siege is easily the most memorable one for me, mainly because of Steven obviously, but it has an epic quote as well:

I quite enjoyed Under Siege 2. It has peak Eric Bogosian and peak Everett McGill. Seagal, on the other hand, is just as bad as he usually is.

Sondra Locke, who I remember best as the naif in The Outlaw Josey Wales.

Unfortunately, she will probably be best remembered not for her roles but for being treated terribly by Clint Eastwood.

Sad to hear about Sondra Locke.

Just read that the Finnish director Matti Kassila has died as well, aged 94. He was probably most known for the four Inspector Palmu films. Winner of seven Jussi Awards throughout his lifetime also.

Learning about how Eastwood treated her was certainly one of the many lessons I've gotten about how to view your "heroes' - or rather, why you shouldn't have heroes at all. I still love Eastwood as a filmmaker, but it's become abundantly clear that he's a pretty shitty person, like a lot of other "great men" (and some, but probably many fewer, great women, of course). And we'll never know what kind of filmmaker Locke could have been had she had the kinds of chances he got.

Good little piece here:

Kazimierz Kutz - the highly-regarded and hugely significant film-maker, theatre director and, latterly, political representative for Silesia in the Polish Senate has died at the age of 89.

I have only seen Nobody's Calling, but it was a very strong psychological piece with a new wave air to it. It was a little rough around the edges, but I also believe it was his second or third feature. A great film that showed a lot of promise.

I actually have Pearl in the Crown and will watch it now. Been meaning to for a long time.

I haven't seen anything from him myself but he's someone whose work has intrigued me a lot for a number of years now. 'Ludzie z pociagu' / 'Night Train' is the first of his works I heard of and one I'm particularly looking forward to seeing (someday!).

Pearl in the Crown is definitely worth seeing as well. Stanchly directed if not dragging on a little in the second half. 7.5. I gave Nobody's Calling 8.

Night Train looks really interesting, but could not find it anywhere. :(

(Are you sure you're not mixing it with Pociaq / Night Train made by Jerzy Kawalerowicz two years earlier?)

Oh, no. Absolutely not! I've seen and loved the ambiance to the Kawalerowicz, with the strange musicality and motifs on the train and in the night-time countryside. A haunting and unsettling film with both tenderness and the intrusion of sharpness. Hope to like Kutz's similarly-titled film as much. It used to be available online, broken up into parts. Presumably the rights holder has had the offending uploads taken down.

Curious that they are both called Night Train in English. Pociąg (the Polish language doesn't have a 'q') means simply 'train', Ludzie z pociągu means '(the) people from the train'.

Thanks for pointing that out. I glanced at IMDb this morning upon hearing of his death and hastily (and absent-mindedly) used the English-language title that showed up first. I do actually know the film as 'The People from the Train' and MUBI, which is generally pretty accurate when it comes to such things, indeed has the film listed under that title.

Putting two and two together several years ago after seeing the Kawalerowicz film and the Yugoslavian documentary short 'Ljudi sa Neretve' allowed me to guess the correct English-language title! Obvious links there between Serbo-Croat and Polish!

Yes, they tend to be quite nicely put together. They obviously miss a few notable people but that's understandable.

It's also known as The Living Dead at Manchester Morgue. I saw it recently, it's remarkably good for a low-budget 70's horror and quite good in its own right.

Yeah I saw that in October as well, and I'm sure a few others did as it hit two challenges. Really solid film. Looks like a lot of his other stuff is pretty obscure and probably hard to find subbed, but I'm sure I'll try to track one or two down at some point.
