RIP Anthony Minghella

via wordweaverlynn comes the very sad news that Anthony Minghella, the wonderful director/screenwriter of The English Patient, The Talented Mr. Ripley and Cold Mountain, among other works, has died, of a blood clot following surgery.

It's a great loss to the creative film making community.

It's also scary - he was only 54 (two years older than I).

Yes, he was young--but BBC reported that it was a hemorrhage that happened during surgery on his neck, so one of those deaths that is not from illness, exactly. Very bad luck, and a chance misfortune, instead. ... surgery is always risky, but most of the time, that sort of thing doesn't happen...

I am waiting to see his "Cold Mountain"
