    This is for commemotating people who recently passed away.

    Very sad to hear the news that great French actor Philippe Noire's departure.
    He left many great films and my favourites are

    Zazie den le metro
    La vie de chateau
    Alexandre le bienheureux
    Le Vieux fusil
    Cinema Paradiso
    Il Postino

    Alexsandre le bienheureux is a little gem: when the protagonist's bossy wife was killed by car accident he regains freedom, stops working and stays in bed all day! His pet dog is doing his errands. I also love really beautiful soundtrack by Valdimr Cosma.

    In Le Vieux Fusil, Noire plays a vengeful surgeon whose beautiful wife and daughter were murdered by Nazis. I saw the film on TV when I was 12, still cannot get over its devastating image.

    I missed an opportunity to meet him in 2000 when he was attending fund raising gala at Institut Francais, but very grateful to see many excellent films he made in more than 40 years and many people will discover/watch them.

    i saw him perform live
    when he was past 60
    and he was awesome
    i had not even come to see him perform
    but i thought i heard his voice and said
    "Is that James Brown?"
    the other people i was with did not care
    so i told em
    "I'm gonna go check it out."
    and slowly i made it to the front, where i could better see him do
    'his thing'
    which struck me more like a spiritual revival
    than merely a performance
    he bantered too
    and did not seem to mind that most of the crowd did not know his tunes real well
    then he played
    Papa's Got a Brand New Bag
    and i realized
    'woa, this aint my music, but its still awesome'
    it was one of those
    'hey, there really is something called 'objectivity' moments...'

    I saw him two years ago, and man, was he alive or what! I was amazed because his ability to still set a stage on fire. I'm glad I still had the chance to see him..Happy Christmas :(

    I really have to be honest and say i didn't enjoy his music personally, but I did see him live, and he was amazing. The music faded away, his style, his precence... amazing.

    I'm surprised we didn't have any saint vs. wifebeater disputes over JB yet.

    LOL!!
    It's Christmas, no need for an unnecessary argument.:p
    Besides, I haven't heard Morrissey mentioned JB in interviews.

    I love hte way George Best got pilloried on this board recently for being a wife-beater but cos James Brown no longer has a brand new bag such trivial things like that and going to gaol for it aren' even mentioned. A flawed genius? Well he was no Sly Stone,
