Jonathan Demme 1944 – 2017

RIP Jonathan Demme.

Swing Shift made it possible for Kurt and Goldie to be lifelong partners.
Stop Making Sense introduced David Byrne to the masses.
Silence of the Lambs made me afraid to walk home alone from the movie theater.
Philadelphia brought compassion and kindness about having AIDS and the gay community to straight middle America.
Rachel Getting Married showed us you still do indie good.
And Ricki and the Flash proved Rick Springfield is still hot.

A life well lived and art well crafted.
