Felt I should post here too.

 
We also have the Arrogant Academics topic for such talking heads.

 

 

Indeed. But it won't really matter where I post it, as I fully expect someone else to post it in another thread (probably Guest) as seems to be the usual way of things around here. *sigh* Let's see if I'm wrong.

Jacques Rivette
 
The Iconic New Wave Director is dead at 87
 
That leaves only Agnes Varda and Lean Luc Godard as the only Directors from that movement left

That's a bigger death than bloody Bowie's. 
 
 
DJL quickly departs before all hell breaks loose in this thread....
 
No argument from me. I completely agree.
Nice to meet a person of intelligence and discernment around these parts!  :D

Sorry, but who he? Not on my long list. I've read your linked artical and find that your size for size comparison (in my considerd view) is way mistaken. David Bowie was a giant of a great in his sphere, and beyond. As directors of film go, this French guy was not only not previously known to me, it needed a boring artical to tell me he was considered to have been very good at what he did. Thus and therefore he never became a giant in his scope of work. Because his story never cut beyond the fan base. Sorry, but one "wave" don't make a storm.

That was one of my old theme teams. I was struggling to get obits so abandoned it eventually. I met Ruth when she came to give a talk when I was a student. She was very nice.

Italian experimental performer Raphael Schumacher, 27, is currently in a coma, having experienced oxygen deprivation when a hanging scene he attempted was overshadowed by some technical difficulties in the all important noose area. :unsure:
