Anthony Minghella, rest in peace

In one of those events that make you realize that life is way too short and potentially sends you immediately to the gym, the director of The English Patient and The Talented Mr. Ripley - Anthony Minghella - has passed, at age 54. I've always felt more satisfied with The English Patient than other film snobs, even with that wacky attempted murder by crashing airplane.

English Patient was a wonderful film. There is cachet in detesting it, but we're not all robots.
