I definitely remember being impressed by Boyz n the Hood, though I wouldn't say I was blown away by it or any of the similar films that came out at the same time or immediately followed it (Menace II Society and Straight Out of Brooklyn made by the even younger Matty Rich are probably the two that stick out most), I do remember thinking - given the award nominations and box office - this might be the start of a real trend, maybe now is the time when black American filmmakers are really going to come into their own. Do the Right Thing of course had been a big hit and Spike Lee kept getting plenty of notice through the 90s but in retrospect it really wasn't a huge renaissance - that huge renaissance seems more likely to be occurring right now and it's sad that Singleton isn't going to have the opportunity to be part of this wave, which he certainly was instrumental in paving the way for.

Just a couple of years younger than me and apparently like many in our generation, a Star Wars junkie as a kid, idolizing George Lucas and probably a lot of the same films I grew up on. I'm not from LA or black but this hits closer to home than many deaths. RIP

Back then, it seemed to me like somewhat of a cultural battle: Spike Lee, Singleton and the like on one side, and In Living Color and the Wayans brothers on the other. I think the Wayans won, unfortunately. And if you compare Spike Lee vs. Tyler Perry today...arrgh.

I remember being younger and completely uninterested in Boyz n the Hood because it was a Black film for Black people. But when I watched it last year, damn... it moved me in a way that was only touched by Do the Right Thing. Hence me nominating BntH for DtC. RIP, y'all.

Interesting timing with the release of Boyz in the Woods. Yes this film exists but I don't know if there is a connection beyond the title.

Mayhew was 7 feet 2 tall. He wanted to be Darth Vader but David Prowse got the role. Prowse height is 6 feet 6.

Phil Solomon.

Last Days in a Lonely Place was flawed but a very interesting concept. I'll check out more of his work soon. However, he personally complained on KG for them to bring his work down.
A bunch of his work is being added on KG now, including American Falls which is considered to be his masterpiece. I'll try to add it on imdb later today.

Unfortunately the DVD that got removed from KG years ago is still not up. It contained stuff like Remains to Be Seen, and Elementary Phrases. I wanna see both badly. The DVD was called Five films by Phil Solomon. According to worldcat only a VHS tape is available. Maybe they'll be restored in higher quality soon.

I wouldn't go as far as to celebrate his death, as much as I wanted to see his stuff. Still, I don't know why he got special treatment.

EDIT: American Falls is now added on imdb :party: that was fast. I'll see it today.

Jean-Claude Brisseau, French director, 74. Known for provocative and sexually explicit work; I haven't seen anything of his myself though a few of them look interesting, perhaps others will chime in with some kind of appreciation?

it's what his The Exterminating Angels is about. He was found guilty of having made three actresses perform sexual acts with each other in an audition.

RIP Norma! Her pies are the stuff of legend.

It's not completely surprising we're losing Twin Peaks stars considering the non-teenager characters were older (and the actors themselves as well of course) and the original series was just about 30 years ago (!) but that doesn't make it any less sad.

Seen neither, but both have been on my radar for a while. Should get around to them.

His early work is very interesting, and not too explicit. They have a post-new wave feeling, both visually and thematically. His later work feels more exploitative - but I have only seen 6 of his films, so I can't really judge, especially as I have seen none of his 90s work.

Un jeu brutal (1983) is his best so far for me.

So sad to learn that Brisseau has passed away. One of my great discoveries from last year. 'Céline' may be one of greatest films ever imo. Also, his 'Que le diable nous emporte' is one of the best things to come out last year. A great film to end your career with, and also one that sums up many of the thematics of his oeuvre.
Also seen 'Secret Things' and 'Bruit et de fureur', both good films as well. Still looking forward to watching more of his stuff. He's of a funny kind... Many of his films seems quite alike - of the ones I've seen there's a lot of shots which seems like variations or replications of some of his own shots, often gothic images of curtains in wind and ravens, but also people meditating and levitating. He was painting the same rose over and over, like Hong Sang-Soo or Éric Rohmer also does it/did it.
He was one of the great ones and I'm looking forward to see more of his stuff.

The number of actors in the third season of Twin Peaks who died during/since the filming is heartbreaking:

Catherine Coulson
Miguel Ferrer
Warren Frost
Brent Briscoe
Harry Dean Stanton
and now, Peggy Lipton

Yeah I can't say I've ever been a huge fan, especially of the non-musical rom-coms she did like That Touch of Mink or [Lover Come Back which are really sexist and sometimes outright offensive - that period in Hollywood sure hasn't aged well. But I like the musicals I've seen her in for the most part and as that's a good chunk of her small-ish filmography I'm sure I'll be seeing more of them in the future. Sad how as the last couple of years have brought a resurgence to a small extent in the musical film in America, we've seen the deaths of several of the greats from the golden age - Debbie Reynolds, Stanley Donen and now Doris. Well they can't go on forever.
