  Farewell Jonathan Demme [read more]
  Eclectic director dies aged 73
  The death of Jonathan Demme, Oscar-winning film director, has been announced. He was best known for two of his nineties hits, the hugely successful and influential Silence of the Lambs, and compassionate AIDS drama Philadelphia, but before that he had built up a strong cult reputation with such films as the Roger Corman produced efforts he started his career with, Caged Heat, Crazy Mama and Fighting Mad, then CB comedy Handle With Care, Hitchcock thriller Last Embrace, and true life tale Melvin and Howard (his greatest cult movie).

Come the eighties his work rose in profile with the troubled flop Swing Shift, all-time classic concert movie Stop Making Sense, comedy thriller Something Wild, superb monologue Swimming to Cambodia, and another comedy Married to the Mob. After those nineties blockbusters his work tailed off with bizarre Beloved, flop remake The Truth About Charlie, hit remake The Manchurian Candidate, and dramas Rachel Getting Married and Ricki and the Flash. At home with documentary or fiction, especially well-attuned to music, he leaves a legacy to be proud of.
