R.I.P., Jonathan Demme

So sad to hear about the passing of the Jonathan Demme, who was one of the buzziest directors of the ’80s and early ’90s (Melvin and Howard, Something Wild, The Silence of The Lambs, Philadelphia). Demme died yesterday in New York City from esophageal cancer and complications from heart disease. The cancer hit him in 2010, recurred two years ago, and then advanced in force over the last few weeks.
