Jonathan Demme R.I.P.:

Jonathan Demme ist im Alter von 73 Jahren gestorben, anscheinend an „esophageal cancer and complications from heart disease“.

Der Mann hatte in den 70ern mit Exploitation-Schlocks wie Caged Heat – Das Zuchthaus der verlorenen Mädchen angefangen, in den 80ern drehte er Musikvideos für die Talking Heads (für die er auch den Konzertfilm Stop Making Sense produzierte) und UB40, um dann 1991 den Genre-Überklassiker Silence of the Lambs abzuliefern, für den er 1992 den Regisseur-Oscar gewann. Danke für den ganzen Chianti, Jon! Sad day.



Demme maintained a private personal life, but his career was marked by a remarkably versatile creative output that included acclaimed narratives and documentaries films stretching back to the early ’70s. He made his debut with the 1971 biker film “Angels Hard as They Come,” a Roger Corman production during the B-movie producer’s heyday, but his career reached another plane of critical and commercial success with a string of ’80s dramas, including “Melvin and Howard, “Swing Shift,” and “Something Wild.”

Demme reached a new plane of success in the next decade, with the back-to-back releases of “The Silence of the Lambs” and “Philadelphia.” At the same time, he remained an active documentarian, creating the definitive Talking Heads film “Stop Making Sense,” in addition to three films with Neil Young.
