RIP Anthony Minghella

Oscar-winning director Anthony Minghella has died suddenly at age 54 of a hemorrhage following surgery last week to remove a growth in his neck.

Minghella was the director of some of the finest films of the modern era, including The Talented Mr. Ripley, Cold Mountain, Breaking and Entering, Truly, Madly, Deeply, and Mr. Shakes' favorite film, The English Patient.

Oh dear. Blub. He was one of my favorites. He's left us with extraordinary gifts.
