In Memoriam: George Fasel
I am sad indeed to see that George Fasel of A Girl and a Gun, a favorite film blog and one of the first I ever linked to, died this week of cancer at age 67. It is strange how glowing an impression you can get of an individual, merely by observing his film taste. George's was exquisite. His writing was elegant and erudite, always done at a high level that demanded engagement from his readers. I am glad to see that his site will remain up, because I refer to it often. His correspondence, and his responses in his comments threads, showed a gracious and thoughtful man. My deepest sympathy to his family.
