D.A. Pennebaker, gone at 94.

Variety Magazine

Quote:
D.A. Pennebaker, a director and cinematographer known for his documentaries, including the classic “Don’t Look Back” (1967), “Monterey Pop” (1968) and “The War Room” (1993) and “Elaine Stritch at Liberty” (2002), died Thursday night of natural causes, Variety has confirmed. He was 94.


Pennebaker was pretty much the very first person to adapt movie cameras specifically for "run and gun" style filmmaking.

And now the news we dreaded:

Kenneth L. Williams III, aka "Golem", passed away on June 2, 2019.
The obituary was just that brief, just the facts, ma'am.

Ken was a conservative fish out of water at the somewhat "liberal" Rant but always thoughtful, gentle, accommodating and open to other points of view.
Ken also ran a regular feature which might sound morbid to some, but to us Ranters, was a gentle reminder to honor those who had carved a path and lit the way.
The Passing Parade was a place where we honored those who had gone on before us.
And now with the news of Ken's passing, in addition to noting how much he will be missed by The Rant, I will add a note to honor him there.
It is sad to hear of his passing but we at the Rant also knew how grief-stricken he was at the loss of Estelle. We knew how much he treasured that amazing woman.
I pray he has been brought together with her for eternity and I offer my profound sympathy to his wonderful family and friends.

Golem defended me on some freaky right-wing site years ago. Took a lot of heat for it. He was about the only Conservative I knew who had real principles and was thinking for himself.
