Cult Character Maker, R.I.P.
I saw Enemy Of The State with a friend in Vancouver who grew up with Ridley and Tony Scott. She went to school with them and was a lifelong friend of them especially Tony Scott. She once rode all over Los Angeles on the back of a motorcycle with her old school buddy once and I shall hold this image in my head of an artist who in my perspective had accomplished so much in film and seemed to live a life of fun and adventure too. It's so sad to think someone with his talent, lifestyle, experience and success could not find peace of mind...but it is also a reminder that those things are not the source of peace of mind.
