Huh? I guess opinions will be opinions, but she makes the movie for me and I really like her performances in general.

Of the actresses nominated that year, Malone wouldn't have been my pick (I'd go with Eileen Heckart, though I know that's not a popular opinion either), but I'm certainly not mad at her win. I agree with knives, she was a good actress in general and one I've enjoyed in whatever I've seen her in (particularly her bit in The Big Sleep).

I'll always think fondly of these two (perhaps odd) pieces in particular: her speech about commodity and her excellent take on Go Set a Watchman, which was unfairly slagged by critics who were looking at it from the wrong angle.

Very nice read, thanks for posting. So many 90s memories-I has always hoped his work with Elastica would have jump started more work with Justine Frischmann.

Devastatingly bad news, but unsurprising. He was obviously in ill health for some time, and seemed uninterested in taking care of himself, continuing to drink as if he were still in his twenties.

The Fall is by a huge margin my favorite rock band, and Smith's lyrics were incomparably strange and imaginative. Regardless of the band's composition, its sound bore his unique imprint.

My great aunt died last Friday and this hit me way harder. Nothing in the world has had an influence on me anywhere near The Fall have.

RIP Mark E Smith, one of the greats of indie music for decades on end. And he was great up to the end there: Our Future, Your Clutter has become my favorite Fall album

I know your brand is having the off-the-beaten-path opinions on this forum but good lord man.

Rather than recommend their music which is worthy of its own thread, I strongly recommend fans of the group check out The FALLen which is a great read, and perfectly captures the madness of being a Fall fan. Other diehards will certainly see a bit of themself in the author, I know I did.

In addition, Steve Hanley's book from last year is a bit hard to get into, but once you vibe with his writing style, it's very rewarding, and a great first-person account of time in the band. It's especially helpful and clarifying about a number of mythological Fall events (like MES insisting on using a cassette tape to serve as the master for Bend Sinister.

A longer obit/appreciation from Minny.
She also worked in the film industry some.
Btw, Howard Tate does a nice cover of the song Girl From the North Country.

Composer and regular Mel Brooks collaborator (on The Elephant Man as well as the likes of Blazing Saddles and Young Frankenstein) John Morris.

I think John Morris was seriously underrated by everybody other than Mel Brooks and the people in his circle. I've gotten raised eyebrows for this before, but it still makes me kind of sad that David Lynch used "Adagio for Strings" for Elephant Man's final scene instead of the music John Morris wrote, which tied in so beautifully with the Psalm 23 scene. Plus the fact that the Barber piece subsequently became so unremittingly overused, though Lynch obviously couldn't have foreseen that.

And of course Morris had a hand in one of the all-time best film music jokes in cinema, from High Anxiety.
