Oscar-nominated anime director Isao Takahata, best known for directing films like Grave Of The Fireflies and The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya, and who co-founded Studio Ghibli with Hayao Miyazaki, sadly passed away. http://www.indiewire.com/2018/04/isao-takahata-dead-dies-studio-ghibli-grave-of-the-fireflies-1201949581/

I loved The Tale of the Princess Kaguya and think it would have been a great Oscar winner. Such a beautifully told tale with gorgeous animation.

“Milos Forman, Oscar-Winning Director of ‘Cuckoo’s Nest’ and ‘Amadeus,’ Dies at 86”
RIP Milos Forman 🙁
Amadeus was a truly great film. One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest had many breakout stars like Brad Dourif, Danny DeVito, and Christopher Lloyd. I never saw The Firemen’s Ball, but heard that was also really well done. At least with Forman, you can’t say gone too soon. Here is to the full and accomplished life he lived!

For Cuckoo’s Nest and Amadeus alone, truly one of the all-time great filmmakers. He will be missed.
