Well, not a death particularly.
But it’s a sad day as Disney (who bought them for only $70M) has decided to shut down Miramax.
Yes, that same Disney that keeps feeding us with ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy, cancels Pushing Daisies… and gave us Miley Cyrus to rot the minds of our younger generation.
Miramax gave us The Piano, Reservoir Dogs, The English Patient, Shakespeare in Love, Chicago, The Talented Mr. Ripley, Clerks, Doubt, There Will Be Blood, Gone Baby Gone, Happy-Go-Lucky, Le Scaphandre et le Papillon, No Country for Old Men, Kinky Boots, Finding Neverland… just to name a few.
Good taste is dead. *sighs*
It is a sad, sad, sad day in the history of cinema….
ugh, I know, right?
