Michael Winner, a much beloved director here at Junta Juleil, passed away this morning.
His best-crafted films include the original DEATH WISH, THE SENTINEL, and THE MECHANIC, but I think he'll be most remembered for DEATH WISH 3, the outrageous, incredible Cannon film that reigns over action movie sequels like a benevolent, chicken-loving monarch. And his legendary multi-film partnerships with giants of cinema Charles Bronson and Oliver Reed shall not be forgotten. Here's to you, Mr. Winner, here's to exploding juke boxes, mail-order rocket launchers, and dummies plummeting to their doom– your films have made this viewer very happy. R.I.P.
