Anthony Minghella R.I.P.

Anthony Minghella died.

Suddenly, unexpectedly.

When an artist dies in his or her prime it really does change the world. Expectations are cancelled. We thought we were going to see many more movies with his name on them- and now we're not.

The frame catches in the gate, shudders and burns.

I liked Truly, Madly, Deeply best. They called it the British Ghost, but it's much, much better- sweeter, more intelligent, closer to the truth.

His last film- a TV adaption of The No 1. Ladies Detective Agency- gets its premiere this coming Sunday.
