Miriam: In a magical garden they sing how they follow the stream to its source, gliding over the water.
Sarah: Is it a love song?
Miriam: I told you, it was sung by two women.

  1. He will always have a fond place in my heart for giving us The Hunger and True Romance. Very sad news.

  2. :(


  3. It’s tragic to hear the circumstances of his death. My thoughts are with his family and friends, who must be devastated by the news. He certainly left his mark on cinema, and I’ll always be appreciative for True Romance.

  4. I’d add Crimson Tide to the list and you have to admire a guy so fully committed to what he was doing. He did not phone it in.
