    He directed my all time favorite movie, "Man on Fire." :wow:

    I was just watching "Unstoppable" earlier today and thought how similar the directing was to "Man on Fire." I guess that's why.

    Curious what his note says....sad story

    Wow, he did a LOT of really top drawer productions.

    I wonder what his demon was?

    He had some good movies.

    He had some oddballs though. "Man on Fire" was great but had a very "distinctive" style.

    I wonder what made him do this?

    True Romance was a good flick. I love the last scene - or what was SUPPOSED to be the last scene.

    "Yer so cool. Yer so cool."

    In the end, she had far FAR more boob than brain. LOL

    True Romance was great. Some people can have a lot and still be missing something. Sad.

    Suicide demonstrates a lack of faith. I wonder why he did it?

    Of his many great movies posted here so far, my favorite remains True Romance (which Quentin Tarantino wrote, but sold, in order to fund Reservoir Dogs).
