Anthony Minghella Has Died

Terrible news.

Anthony Minghella wrote and directed two of my ultimate faves, Truly Madly Deeply and The Talented Mr. Ripley and was only 54.

Obviously our thoughts are with his family and friends at this sad time.

Variety is saying he suffered a brain haemorrhage after a routine operation, though I expect it will be confirmed later.

Talented Mr Ripley is one of my favourite films.

Another big talent that'll be missed.

Such sad news.

I thought it was an absolutely masterly adaptation - I quite liked the book, but loved the film. I don't normally like Jude Law at all, but was captivated by his performance as Dickie, he was so vile! The fact we feel so sympathetic towards Tom as well when he is SO screwed up is great.

awww Truly Madly Deeply is one of my favourite films. That's so sad and unexpected.

One less delight in the shed.

Rach said...

I'm really sad he's gone. He made stuff that made me cry but I'd still watch it again.

By the way Dave's done his link instead because he didn't know what else to say. Both in shock.

I wonder what will happen to Number One Ladies Detective Agency. Is it in post-production? He'll be a hard act to follow.

Well miffed about this. Another great mind gone too soon. LOVED the English Patient.

Very sad news. Saw a clip of his new film and it looks wonderfully shot.

From what I remember the No1 Ladies Detective Agency was in post production. I think it's being shown on easter sunday if i'm not mistaken.
