Tragic news about the death of Tony Scott. He may have made some stinkers, but he made some greats too. Whatever people thought of his movies, he knew how to entertain and he had an undeniably distinct (and divisive) style – i.e. fast cuts, bright colours and Denzel Washington.
I was lucky enough to interview him a couple of years ago and he came across as a genuinely nice guy with a passion for his field that was unmistakeable. At the time, I was dubious about his plans for the remake of The Warriors that he told me in detail about, but now I’m sad that I’ll never get to see it.
