RIP, Tony Scott (“True Romance”)


Director Tony Scott died in an apparent suicide yesterday. While some have dismissed him as a commercial hack, he directed a lot of terrifically energetic and entertaining films including “The Last Boy Scout,” “Crimson Tide,” and one of my Top 5 all-time favorite films “True Romance,” which was written by Quentin Tarantino. Scott directed huge commercial films, but was so entranced by the “True Romance” script, he took a chance on it when no one else would and Scott’s interest piqued interest in Tarantino’s other work which was unproduced at the time. Here’s my all-time favorite scene from “True Romance.”
