Terrible, sad news this morning as it was announced that a Director, whom we hoped would go on forever, Mike Nichols has died at age 83. Let’s look at just a few of his many great films:
His last directorial effort was 2007’s Charlie Wilson’s War but he continued to work on projects right up until yesterday. He is survived by his wife Diane Sawyer, his three children and four grandchildren, and one of the most significant body of work in American cinema.
