Director Blake Edwards dies (news.blogs.cnn.com) I've seen more of his films than I initially thought - and they were all pretty funny. Ditto on all counts. I didn't know he was alive and I've seen more of his films than I expected. RIP As usual, The Onion A/V Club put together a great write up complete with clips: http://www.avclub.com/articles/rip-blake-edwards,49160/ I didn't know Edwards worked with Orson Welles on the War of the Worlds radio broadcast. Wow, he was old. (edited by John Orquiola on 16.12.10 1118) @BackoftheHead www.backofthehead.com

Now if you have an extra 10 minutes, I'll recommend the scene that leads up to it: Click Here (youtube.com) Just the money shot: Click Here (youtube.com) (NSFW) I still pull out The Great Race every 3 years or so. Then there was the time Blake received an honorary Oscar, and drove his motorized wheelchair right through a wall. Dying is easy. Comedy is hard. Rest easy, funnyman ;)
We went to see the Prestige last night, but it had disappeared from the theater, so we took a chance on The Fountain instead. If anyone has seen a Darren Aronofsky film, they probably know what to expect.
