Satoshi Kon, Dead at 47

The passing of Satoshi Kon is a terrible blow.

He was a film maker and an artist who respected the audiences, respected the technique of animation and pushed what was expected from both.

After 47 years on earth, he's left us with a legacy of engaging, intelligent, and adult films -fulfilling the promise that frame by frame drawing can indeed create transcendent stories.

Here are some past brief thoughts on the passed great.

This really is a terrible blow. I saw him speak at the Lincoln Film Center two years ago, and he was photographing the audience much of the time. He appeared to have a very unique point of view.

I am very sad to hear of his passing.
