I interviewed Tim Hetherington and Sebastian Junger at the Independent Spirit Awards this year. While my interview sucks (in my opinion), I found both men down-to-earth and entirely passionate about their important work on “Restrepo.” Hetherington was killed today in Libya. His words in this interview ring so true. We are at war. RIP.
I always felt like he had better film roles in him. Sucks. He’ll be long remembered be it “Ghost,” “Dirty Dancing,” “Roadhouse,” “Donnie Darko,” and “Point Break.”
Our sympathies go to Bernie Mac’s family and friends. It’s a sad day – not just because a gifted comedian died young but because this is becoming the norm of late. People are dying way to frickin young. Tim Russert. I could go on. It’s depressing. It makes you want to tell people you know that you love them. Well, Mac’s work will live on. Sorry this sappy post won’t. Bottomline… we lost a man whose talent was never truly recognized in film but most certainly was on television.
