A Darkened Cinema
Writer and film director Anthony Minghella died today in London. He was 54 years old, and my favorite living filmmaker. His movies, all made from Minghella-authored scripts, are:
Truly, Madly, Deeply
The English Patient
The Talented Mr. Ripley
Breaking & Entering
Minghella was also an accomplished playwright.
This man's work has been a primary and enduring source of inspiration to me since I first viewed The English Patient on the big screen in 1996.
Today the storytelling world has lost a great light, and young writers have lost a great teacher.
