RIP Jean-Marc Vallée (1963 – 2021)

Jean-Marc Vallée was a Canadian filmmaker, film editor, and screenwriter, known for such films as Dallas Buyers Club (2013). A masterpiece, in my opinion.

 Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

He was, next to David Cronenberg and Atom Egoyan, one of the more interesting post-war Canadian filmmakers.

He also directed and Big Little Lies (2017) one of the few television series of the television series era I have seen.

RIP Andrew Weatherall (1963 – 2020)

Andrew Weatherall was an English DJ, record producer, and remixer.

There was a time when music research took up most of my time. It coincided with the golden age of the music compilation, roughly from 1990 to 2005.

 Fabric 19 (2004)

From that era stem Nine O’Clock Drop (2000) and Fabric 19 (2004).

Andrew Weatherall is also the man who made me discover “Black But Sweet” (1931) via his “Wilmot” composition.
