Alan Parker.  Made some cracking films (Midnight Express, Angel Heart, Mississippi Burning) and some shit ones (the musicals).

Was just posting that myself when the ‘new reply posted’ notification came up. 

Midnight Express is a mad film when you delve into the backstory behind, but also a great piece of work. Didn’t realise that he hadn’t directed in so long

Wasn't a massive fan but The Commitments and Midnight Express are both really enjoyable. All those musicals though.

Tony Morris - familiar face of Northwest news for nearly two decades - died of kidney cancer at the weekend.

Tonight’s show was dedicated to him and completely wrote me off. It was heartbreaking but also raised a load of smiles; no idea how Lucy Meacock held it together for almost the entire broadcast.

I don't live in the north west and I've no idea who Tony Morris is but fuck me if I didn't just watch that whole video with a tear in my eye.
