This happened in 2021 but I only just found out, while I was researching the hippie film Escalation of the previous dead person.
Richard Rush was an American film director known for films such as Psych-Out (1968).
William Hurt was an American actor known for his parts in Ken Russell’s drug epos Altered States (1980), the gay epic Kiss of the Spider Woman (1985), the cyberpunk classic Dark City (1998) and Cronenberg’s A History of Violence (2005).
Hurt’s death has made me curious about Dark City, which I should have seen already but I have not.
Douglas Trumbull was an American film director known for directing films such as Silent Running (1972) and Brainstorm (1983).
He also did special effects on 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner and The Tree of Life.
Sidney Poitier was a Bahamian-American actor famous for such performances as in Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner (1967).
Peter Bogdanovich was an American director and general film person.
To me, he is an integral part of the Roger Corman phenomenenon.
Of all his films, I have the fondest memories of Paper Moon, I remember the beginning of that film vividly.
Above, a documentary by a certain Adam Hulin.
Happy new year from us.
