Director Tony Scott commits suicide

What a crazy weekend this was! Not to mention the incredible number of celebrity deaths in the last week alone.

Director Tony Scott took his own life on Sunday by jumping from a bridge near Long Beach. Such sad and shocking news.

What happened? Why was he so unhappy?

Certainly he'd had a very successful career and repeatedly shown a true stylistic vision with the movies he directed. From "Top Gun" thru his last film "Unstoppable", Tony Scott saw the action thriller through an MTV lens.

Whether you like his movies or not, you have to acknowledge the man for creating a style of cinema that will be acknowledged and copied for years to come. I'm certainly waiting to hear his brother Ridley's reaction. They co-headed the Scott Free production company.
