Anthony Minghella RIP

Rats! A great talent snatched away

Anthony Minghella has died aged 54.

Minghella’s films included The English Patient – which earned him an Oscar for best director in 1997 – as well as Truly, Madly, Deeply and Cold Mountain.

He had an operation for a growth in his neck last week and the operation seemed to have gone well. But he had a fatal haemorrhage at 0500 GMT on Monday…

The English Patient was one of the best films I’ve ever seen.
