Mr. Russell, to say I will miss you is one thing. To say the world will miss you is an understatement. Of course there is Women in Love and The Devils, but Altered States and Tommy were both seminal to me, and thanks to you, I will never lose sight of what Ann-Margret can do if you give her enough baked beans. Gothic and Lair of the White Worm have their place in my heart as well, as does Whore, if primarily because I feel dirty when I say its name.
We need more filmmakers like you, and now that you are gone, I dare anyone, myself included, to fill the void that your absence creates. Thank you for your art. You will always provoke and inspire.
