Wow. That's upsetting news to wake-up to today: George Fasel, who wrote the very smart critical film blog A Girl and a Gun passed away this week on Wednesday after an apparently long battle with cancer. His wife Ruth posted the news on his blog this morning.
I didn't know George -- had never met or spoken with him -- and I would often disagree with some of his opinions, but nobody expressed a love, appreciation and knowledge for cinema better or more eloquently than he did. A pretty decent education in cinema studies could probably be acquired simply by reading through George's archives. His writing will be sorely missed. Thanks George for sharing a little bit of your expertise with the rest of us. My condolences to his family and loved ones.
