Leap year was the planet Earth too heavy tread, VEGASEL half from our ranks a number of irreplaceable people. Of course, each person is indispensable, but it was after the death of the celebrity we experienced a special feeling of orphanhood.
Movie stars we lost in 2016: review “the Movie”
This is one of the first heavy blows dealt to us in 2016-th year. Bowie died, barely having time to release the album Blackstar, which many saw as a farewell to our world. Among personalities of the twentieth century, Bowie is one of the most significant. This man, who was influenced by everything that was happening around him, and which influenced all who have at least one eye saw him on stage or vaguely heard amazing music. Bowie transformed himself into the character, while remaining an individual. Put on a mask, leaving himself a unique Shine to the eyes. In the movie he not only wrote music, but played himself, and all his film immediately became a cult – from documentary about ziggy Stardust to a puppet of the “Labyrinth”. Without Bowie, the world became very gray.

In this symmetry there is something sinister, but it started with the death of Bowie year as if deliberately went to the death of Cohen, the great romance, the outstanding poet whose aesthetics of a century kept the world in suspense for each new word. It seems that the songs sound even in those films in which no music because they are turned into energy, passing directly into the soul, bypassing all physical media. And yet from altmanesque “McCabe and Mrs. Miller” to “natural Born killers” and even the recent tales of “pitt and his dragon” the voice of the priest can hear even the uninitiated. “I am ready, o Lord!” – he sang on the last record. And left.

Another Grand loss is related to music. Prince was not only a pop star but also a successful composer in the movie. Characters recognition in this area – the “Oscar” and “Golden globe”, not counting, of course, seven awards “Grammy”. Guitar virtuoso, one of the most popular artists of the second half of the twentieth century, the Prince seemed eternally young and vigorous. His departure also applies to tragic surprises.

The loss of the cinema in 2016, the year is also impossible to calculate. Kiarostami was for many the main symbol of the Iranian new wave in General, the Eastern movie. A favorite of the festival audience, the Patriarch of cinema, a man whose films it is impossible not to love once and for all. He will forever remain a singer of lyrical sadness, love, beyond words, beautiful, and inexplicable loneliness among people.

Another classic in the top division of cinema. His work is the eternal struggle. All who tried to crush the films of Wajda, eventually yielded to his honesty, civil courage and insight of the artist. Wajda was too loose for the country, for the era, and for all mankind. But he defeated them all and has left us a rich legacy in the form of a number of masterpieces, and a very good movies.

One of the most uncompromising filmmakers of the French new wave. While his colleagues gradually commercialized or withdrawn, Rivett continued to experiment with cinematic language, gathering around him a dedicated team of like-minded people. His films are regularly entered in competitions of the best festivals, but there was always too radical for the main prizes. The rivette this fact does not bother. He just quietly continued to work.

One of the last great classics of Italian cinema. People whose films competed successfully with felliniesque and antonionievskoy, receiving prestigious awards and becoming the events have fans of the movie. Ettore Scola – Director of the very audience, he did much for the development of a genre film, not atstumas nor to adventure films or romantic comedies.

He was one of the brightest (and darkest) of representatives of the Czech new wave, the Czechoslovak government did everything to turn the life of this Director’s a nightmare. He was forbidden to shoot the movie, he was forced to leave his homeland, he wandered through different countries, laboring in the most savage jobs to make ends meet. It is unlikely that all awards for years of service, which he received in old age, is able to compensate. And one can only assume, reviewing his old paintings that could create this surrealist if he did not interfere.

Another ruined kinesiograph. The author of one of the most famous anti-war movie “the deer Hunter” (“Oscar” in the nominations “Best film” and “Best Director”) a hard time about the failure of the next picture, “heaven’s Gate”. Being a perfectionist and provocateur, Cimino is not found worthy of support in Hollywood. For the rest of his life he took only four full-length, the last of which dates back to 1996 year.

In the history of cinema he remains as the author of one of the main romantic films of all time, “love Story”. Then Hiller, mostly, filmed the adventure Comedy in the Soviet salons they were very popular. In parallel Hiller for many years headed the Academy of motion picture arts and Sciences, which awards the “Oscar”. Sam Hiller, by the way, no one film statuettes were not awarded.

A living legend, one of the pillars of “parallel cinema” which in 80-e years became the basis of the Soviet avant-garde cinema. Invented the genre of “necrorealism”, which frantically began to produce the paintings in the film unthinkable and stories, which today might seem parodies of zombie movies George Romero. Yufit has always gathered a huge number of followers, some of whom then began to work in necrorealist the key. Yufit loved and knew everyone except the General public. It seems that it is quite satisfied.

Filosova have also always been much less fame than he deserved. Every Soviet moviegoer had seen it on the screen, but hardly Filonova learned at least in the face, not to mention the crowds of fans on the street. Filozov was too intelligent for our movie, so he preferred to give the role of the second plan. But the films that suspiciously often became national hits. And Filozov continued to keep his distance.

But Alexei Zharkov knew everything. His filmography is many tens of TV and movies, and his characters – a gallery of the nervous and powerful people with negative charisma. Zharkov could easily fit into the costume historical films were his in any crime story, it was removed in the commercial hits and art house. Honored artist of the RSFSR he was still young, and people’s artist of the Russian Federation – when this country began to be called so.

A very young artist, a ridiculous death, fatal accident. Anton Yelchin was one of the most promising actors of his generation. Roles in the blockbusters he combined with the author’s cinema, where he gave sometimes quite risqué images and Yelchin did. To his 27 years Yelchin starred in more paintings than any other in my life. He had millions of fans, was ahead of the long career of a superstar. Still can’t believe all this was broken forever.

Wilder could do nothing – and people still started to laugh. This was a born comedian produced the most outstanding Comedy of his time. Meanwhile, he was simply a great actor and could in any comic to add, for example, a touch of horror. That there is only one small role in the sinister Thriller “Bonnie and Clyde” – it is certainly impossible to forget.

Talent Rickman and his incredible charisma noted by all who knew him. But for millions of viewers he became the one and only embodiment of the contradictory character of the series about Harry Potter. His Snape, despite his gloom, immediately attracted attention, and will not be an exaggeration to say that he is the Central figure of early films about the adventures of a young wizard. It was a complete transformation, which is rarely seen in movies. Absolute talent.
