Wow that's shocking. I am familiar with his work and I know he was an EP and director on Big Little Lies. Must have been sudden.

Yeah, I'm shocked as well. Loved all three of those works, especially Wild which I think was a very underrated hiking movie that I found very moving.

Daaaammmn. Liked him since C.R.A.Z.Y.

Vallee (along with Villeneuve) built on Arcand's success and pushed Quebec cinema to another level.

Very sudden, everybody here in Quebec is shocked. Seems like he died of natural causes. Ironic that he always said he hated Christmas and then died on Christmas day.

RIP

Wow. Totally shocking. Such a loss. He really seemed to be hitting his stride in his career.

They say he died on the 26th - but still close enough for it to be ironic/coincidental.

The first line of CRAZY is "As far as I can remember, I've hated Christmas."

Holy shit. I remember seeing him introduce and do a Q&A of C.R.A.Z.Y. at TIFF. Been a fan ever since.
RIP.

It's believed that he died from a heart attack

Damn. This is sad news.

Of his filmography, I’ve only seen Wild, Dallas Buyers Club, and Sharp Objects. While I can’t say they’re the types of movies I’d want to watch again, they were all very well made movies/series.

RIP and we lost another talented guy who had more good projects in the works that will never come to fruition.
