Thread: In Memoriam

    Re: In Memoriam

    In cancer, anything may be possible. BUT, and I emphasize this, he looked totally well in the various photos of him from the Tulsa event. So even if COVID-19 had never occurred, I would be very surprised to see a cancer patient who looked like that die of his cancer 5 weeks later. Also, it had been all over the press that his hospital admission was due to COVID-19.

    Basically, they are trying to re-write history that has JUST occurred. Just another day at the farm......

    P.S. This note and Ti's just above could also belong in the Descent to Hades thread.

    The sad part is that he more than likely signed the NDA that absolves Tiny et al of any responsibility for his death.

    I was raised not to speak ill of the dead so I won't.

    Alan Parker, underappreciated director of Midnight Express, The Wall, Birdy and Mississippi Burning (among others) have died.
    Not near Kubrick, but another example of how many times The Oscars get it (and got it) wrong.
    Will listen to The Wall later, in his honor.
    Face it. It's the apocalypse.

    He also directed The Commitments, Fame and Evita.

    I’m off to listen to The Wall.

    Midnight Express was great. I had not been exposed to a lot of R rated/mature movies when I first saw it, and it shook me.

    Liked his version of Fame a lot, too.

    May he rest in peace.

    He wasn't a major star, but his death seems worth noting. Wilford Brimley passed away Saturday morning at the age of 85.

    RIP

    I was actually shocked that he was still alive. I only remember him from watching Cocoon as a kid and diabetes awareness commercials and he looked ancient in the 80's. It turns out that he was only 51 when he filmed Cocoon while most of the cast were well into their 70's
