Loss of Anthony Minghella

Sadly, the phenomenally talented Anthony Minghella died today. It would be difficult to name another writer/director in recent memory who could adapt great literature into film the way he could. His work includes The English Patient (for which he won the Oscar for Best Director), The Talented Mr. Ripley, and Cold Mountain. He appears to have died from a brain hemorrhage as a result of an operation on his neck.
