Oh wow. That's sad. I've seen 19 movies that featured Ray Liotta. He was very typecast as the police/criminal heavy, and he was quite good at it, though I think he also did well in different roles. I suppose he'll always be remembered most for Goodfellas, but I really enjoyed his performance in Narc as well.

:rip:

He was apparently in Dominican Republic filming a movie.
Goodfellas is my favorite film of his, followed by Something Wild. My uncle named his cat, Ray, after his character in that one.

Damn! Another one gone too soon. Besides Goodfellas, I think of his breakout role in Something Wild where he pretty much stole the movie. And then more recently he was so effectively menacing as the corrupt cop in The Place Beyond the Pines.

Liotta was a true professional who always gave a full effort even when in a bad movie. He'd approach Wild Hogs like it was Goodfellas.

From my wife's cousin, who went to high school with Ray Liotta:

Yes, I do have my yearbook.
He was the nicest guy, excelled in sports, especially soccer & performed in various plays in our school. He won an award for best drama student at our senior awards ceremony, a $10 certificate in 1973. I knew Ray in high school & even after when I was in NYC for grad school & he was performing in the soap opera, Another World. He will certainly be missed.

Bo Hopkins, 84

American actor who appeared in a wide range of movies and television shows, usually in a supporting role, over a five-decade span. I've seen him twice just this month for the Western challenge, in Monte Walsh (1970) and the Ballad of Little Jo. Some people might remember him as the crazy bank robber who gets very distracted by singing during the opening scene of The Wild Bunch:

Ευάγγελος Οδυσσέας Παπαθανασίου, better known to the rest of the world as Vangelis, Greek composer and musician, 79, COVID. Working early on in prog rock bands and composing the scores for several Greek films including Nikos Koundouros' Vortex, The Face of Medusa, he found lasting fame after moving to London, releasing both solo electronic albums and works in collaboration with others, like Jon Anderson and the English Chamber Orchestra ("Heaven and Hell", 1975, some of which was used later for Carl Sagan's TV series Cosmos), and his career hit the stratosphere when he composed the music for the 1981 Academy Award Best Picture winner Chariots of Fire, which also won an Oscar for Vangelis. The next year he provided the music for Blade Runner, probably even more famous over the ensuing 4 decades. Though none of his other works since quite reached these peaks of popularity, he continued to be a significant name in film and other musical spheres until his death.

Takashi Ishii died 2 weeks ago of cancer. Best known for Gonin, the man had a very unique skill to elevate somewhat sleazier material well above the expected. He stopped making films a couple of years ago, but there was nobody quite like him, so he'll be missed for sure.

This discussion reminds me of a friend I had in Chicago in the 90s who was lucky (or unlucky) enough to see the LAST performances of Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jerry Garcia with the Grateful Dead (both in the area), and Frank Sinatra (in Vegas). She also saw Kurt Cobain's last Chicago performance.
It was the truth, vivid and monstrous, that all the while he had waited the wait was itself his portion..

Philip Baker Hall, actor - 90 years old

Probably best known for his roles in PTA’s early films and for an unforgettable guest appearance on Seinfeld as Bookman the “library cop.” Also played Nixon in Altman’s Secret Honor.

Here’s that classic Seinfeld appearance, so damn funny:

I've seen Philip Baker Hall in 26 movies, though over the course of his career he probably did more TV work than movie work, and library cop Bookman will always be his most memorable role. Hall had that special ability to make everything he was in at least a little bit better.

Such a long and stellar career with several personal setbacks in his life makes him all the more remarkable. Don't think anyone could've begrudged him retiring in the 90s as he was already a legend at that point, seeing him in "Amour" and "Happy End" was the platinum icing on a golden cake.

Adieu and RIP Jean-Louis.

Tony Siragusa, 55

American football player and broadcaster. He spent 12 seasons in the NFL as a defensive tackle and was a member of the legendary defense that led the 1999 Ravens to a championship. Siragusa also had an acting career, appearing in The Sopranos and playing a Russian mobster in 25th Hour.

Dang. And only 55. I do have some memory of that Ravens Super Bowl winning team (it was the 2000 Ravens, btw), but I remember him more when he was working on games for Fox and would report from behind the end zone all the time. And I remember his 25th Hour role, great film.

And also in The Killing. 3 Kubrick films and Blade Runner, that's a pretty good resume right there. I guess I remember him most from Paths of Glory because I've seen that one the most.

Damn, that trailer looks fantastic. I watched the like VHS copy subbed in Spanish, which I used my failing grade in International Baccalaureate Spanish to translate on the fly, which meant nothing made that much sense - but it was a lot of fun regardless and brought us much joy. I'd love to see this on the big screen with a good crowd. Maybe it will come to the US at some point. I'm sure the rights situation is iffy with it, but someone's got to put out a good copy at some point.

Also RIP, I'll always think of him bouncing around with boulders tied to his legs.

Peter Brook, British theater and film director, 97. Considered one of the greatest theater directors in the country in the postwar era, Brook's contributions to film are small but not insignificant. His work for film and TV began with 1953's The Beggar's Opera, and extends into the last decade, with his 1960 Moderato cantabile (written by Marguerite Duras), 1963 Lord of the Flies, 1967 Marat/Sade, 1970 King Lear, and 1990 TV miniseries The Mahabharata being particularly noted or acclaimed.
