Anthony Minghella has died. Story here.

Bit of a shocker and only 54.

EDIT:

More information has come out as to the cause and it turns out he had surgery last week for neck and tonsil cancer.

Guardian article

A truly awful way to go.

I can't say as I'm a big follower as AM's work but at 54 that's tragic.

I don't know if it's appropriate or not but I'll tell this anecdote anyway, just in an attempt to lighten up the mood slightly.

I was at a film festival back in 2000 where we had one of our shorts playing, with a bunch of cast and crew members in attendance. John the Scone (aka John Yates) pointed at a poster for The English Patient, said the word 'minge' then walked off.

We didn't laugh at the time either.

RIP Anthony Minghella.

It's never nice to hear anything like that. Shame.

His films were gash though.
