Director Peter Yates dies

Director Peter Yates has passed away. He helmed some of the most iconic and offbeat movies of the late 60s and 70s; Steve McQueen's actioner "Bullitt", Barbra Streisand's "For Pete's Sake", "Breaking Away", and a personal favorite of mine, "Mother, Jugs & Speed". It has been a seriously long time since I saw "Bullitt" last and I definitely want to experience it again very soon.

You know, I was surprised by his resume. A lot of those movies I would never connect to the same director. Obviously he was very talented and diverse.

I know, I felt the same way when I checked out his bio on Wikipedia. Seriously diverse.
