Rutger Hauer
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-49098435

Like tears...in the rain.


Could there be any greater conceit, than for someone to believe that the universe has to be simple enough for them to be able to understand it ?

Re: Rutger Hauer
Interesting coincidence.

Blade Runner was set in 2019. Rutger Hauer's character, Roy Batty, dies in the film. So both character and actor passed away in 2019. Truly is tears in the rain.

D.A.Pennebaker, 94
Was hoping someone else would mention him. Guess not, so I will.

Probably the most influential film for me was Dont Look Back, a "documentary" of sorts that was both groundbreaking and revealing. He made the young Bob such a hero for my life.
