Well, there goes Tony Scott, RIP
Unless you've been living in a cave for the past day or so, you've probably already heard about the death of Tony Scott, who directed some pretty good movies like Top Gun, Crimson Tide, Enemy of the State, and Unstoppable. He was also the younger brother of Ridley Scott. First off, my condolences to his family, his death is a sad, tragic thing. His death was a big shock for no other reason than the cause: suicide. Tony Scott jumped from a bridge in Los Angeles for reasons yet to be revealed. It was originally reported that he was recently diagnosed with inoperable brain cancer, but his wife and family have denied it. He did leave a suicide note, but what he wrote is unknown. Eyewitnesses, however, have said that Scott jumped to his death with no hesitation, so he was clearly determined. Hopefully, we'll find out at some point.
