A hugely talented and daring director and writer. One who was never afraid to film what he believed in, instead of the usual "safe" Hollywood product.

I hated the English Patient and Cold Mountain. The Talented Mr. Ripley was good.

R.I.P. you will be missed.

Ripley and Cold Mountain are faves for me. I also liked the English Patient a lot. Underrated movie even though it did win Best Picture.

I even kinda liked Breaking and Entering. It was watchable at least.

Kapur Directing Minghella's New York Piece
Source: The Hollywood Reporter
March 26, 2008

Shekhar Kapur, the Indian-born helmer of movies such as Elizabeth and Elizabeth: The Golden Age, will direct one of the last pieces of writing from the late Anthony Minghella, a segment of the urban ode New York, I Love You.

Minghella had written but not cast or shot his segment of the episodic film, which was to have begun shooting in April in Manhattan.

The Hollywood Reporter says producers last week said they were awaiting word from the family before making a decision. According to Kapur, Minghella asked the director to carry out his work shortly before the "English Patient" director went in for surgery two weeks ago.

"He told me his film was about the value of life and how people sometimes just throw away their lives, unable to look beyond into the real beauty of it," Kapur said. "I will direct the film now -- with Anthony in my heart and in presence of his soul."

The Talented Mr. Ripley is a fantastic film. I will miss the opportunity to see more of his work.

An early departure for such a talented filmmaker. Mr. Ripley was his best movie I should say.
