I was going to post this last week, but am just finding time now. Anne V. Coates, the film editor, has died at the age of 92. She won an Oscar for her work on Lawrence of Arabia (1963), and four more nominations, most recently in 1998 for Out of Sight by Steven Soderbergh. There's a minor Eastwood connection: Her next-to-last nomination was for In the Line of Fire in 1993. (She also won an honorary Oscar in 2016.)

Here's the link to the Times obituary:
https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/09/obituaries/anne-v-coates-admired-editor-of-acclaimed-movies-dies-at-92.html

I never knew the famous "match cut" (literally) in Lawrence was her idea:

Quote
In one scene, T. E. Lawrence, a junior British Army officer during World War I, is ordered to the Arabian Peninsula. Receiving the order, he leans over to light the cigarette of a British diplomat (played by Claude Rains), then stares transfixed at the still-lighted match between his fingers.

Lawrence blows out the match, and in the instant he does, the action cuts from the smoldering flame to a panorama of the sunrise over burning desert sands.

In that single cut — born when Ms. Coates looked into Mr. O’Toole’s eyes and chose to splice two discrete bits of film together — is contained the passage of time, a journey through space and a delicious visual pun: a literal “match” cut.

The director Steven Spielberg has described that cut as “the transition that blew me away” when he first saw the film as a youth.

I read through Bourdain's whole three-page obituary (and attendant "tributes") in the Times to find out the answer to why you shouldn't order fish on Mondays. (Quoted in the lead paragraph.) They never did tell me. I had to look it up on Google. (As I suspected, it's because the creatures may have been left over from Friday.)

Anyway ... R.I.P.

Beyond seeimg commercials on TV for his show, I wasnt familiar with Anthony Bourdain, but suicide has claimed another life, and that I do find to be incredibly sad. Although he did die in France, he grew up in the U.S. We really need a much better mental health treatment system in our country. This just shouldnt be happening on the scale that it does in the U.S. Its the 10th leading cause of death, the second among those aged 10 to 34 and the fourth among those aged 35 to 54, and deaths have increased 25% since 1999!
