RIP Tony Horwitz

RIP #TonyHorwitz 


Very sad, gone too young. TBH (the real literary one in the family) absolutely *loved* his writing. I loved #ConfederatesInTheAttic (didn't we all?). Wrote with humour, intelligence, knowledge, and, most importantly, empathy. Leaves an incredible legacy behind.

Rush (2013)

#Rush (2013) 


Criminally underappreciated on first release, now even more poignant given #NikiLauda's recent passing. So many massive names behind (dir.!, DP!, music๐Ÿ‘!, writer!) & in front of camera, esp Hemsworth & *esp* Bruhl - *perfect* casting. Tremendous fun & very moving.

RIP Niki Lauda

RIP #NikiLauda 


Even as a casual racing fan he was a mythic figure growing up. But I had no idea what he had truly gone through until I saw #Rush. What an incredible story, beyond belief. An inspirational testament to the indefatigable human spirit. #DankeNiki #ForNiki #F1
