...Ι was a young kid when I persuaded a relative of mine who just turned 18 to go together (I couldn't enter by myself due to an age restriction to the movie theater) to Tony Scott's THE HUNGER, his first feature film, a dark and glossy, and grossly under-rated film, that still maintained a level of sophistication and intelligence, in a downtown Athens movie theater. (Athens, Greece. Not Athens, Georgia).
I loved the haunting images of Catherine Deneuve and David Bowie as a couple of vampires frequenting night clubs to find their next after hours...dinner... A lot of time passed by and I found the news of Tony Scott's suicide, jumping over the fence and falling off the bridge, a few days ago, shocking. So a couple of images from THE HUNGER is a more suitable farewell to Tony Scott for me then repeating the tiresome TOP GUN etc. mantra... Sometimes the world seems full of uneducated used car salesmen posing as entertainment reporters and film critics.
