Breaking: Anthony Minghella, dead at 54

Sad news today: director Anthony Minghella died today, at the age of 54. Apparently, he had tonsil surgery last week, with no apparent ill effects, but had a brain hemmorhage and died this morning. Minghella, who won an Oscar for The English Patient, had just finished work on an adaptation of the Number 1 Ladies' Detective Agency which is to run on HBO. Jude Law, who worked with the director on three films, has a touching comment in the Guardian article linked above. A truly talented individual, and a shocking loss for film.
