Comment on: Vanishing director George Sluizer dies
The Vanishing is an amazing film. Unforgettable. I was lucky to meet him once, and he was such a lovely guy. So open and down to earth. At least he managed to finish Dark Blood after all this time. That must have made him happy.

A TV crime drama by Jane Campion?! That is really exciting. With that and The Killing 3 on the way, it's a fantastic time for TV. Bring it on...

I first met Bingham at EIFF way back in 1995. He was always the friendly face in a room. Will be sadly missed.
