John Hurt Doctor Who 50th anniversary

John Hurt, a legend of stage and screen for over 50 years who starred in films like Alien, Harry Potter, V for Vendetta, and Hellboy, and took part in the Doctor Who 50th anniversary special, died today, according to CNN. No cause of death was revealed, but that actor had been battling pancreatic cancer since 2015. He was 77.

Hurt was never shy of dying on screen, holding the record amongst thespians, the veteran with over 200 credits on IMDb had his character killed off an amazing 40+ times. The most famous and maybe greatest on screen death of all time came in Ridley Scott’s sci-fi horror classic Alien (1979) when the title creature burst from Hurt’s chest during breakfast to the shock and horror of the rest of the crew.

Jackie starring Natalie Portman

Jackie
Director: Pablo Larraín
Screenwriter: Noah Oppenheim
Cast: Natalie Portman, Greta Gerwig, Peter Sarsgaard, Max Casella, Beth Grant, Billy Crudup, Richard E. Grant, John Hurt
Distributor: Fox Searchlight Pictures
Rated R | 99 minutes
Release Date: December 2, 2016

Contemporary biopics no longer adhere to the traditional means of telling the entire life story of a subject. Nowadays, audiences are only given a small fraction of it. But it is in that stage of life that truly defines the subject. In Jackie, we see Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy at her most vulnerable point in life, where she has to deal with the grief of losing her husband, the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy. The traumatic event would be enough to shatter anyone, but it is what she does in the aftermath that will truly cement her name among the greatest of First Ladies. With a strong script from Noah Oppenheim and director Pablo Larrin giving an outsider’s perspective on the matter, Jackie is hauntingly poetic view of an untold story. My full review below.
