Jonathan Demme Has Passed Away

Director Jonathan Demme has passed away at the age of 73 from cancer complications. Demme's films included The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia and Something Wild. Demme is survived by wife Joanne Howard, and their children Ramona, Brooklyn, and Jos. Read his full obituary at Variety.

Jodie Foster released the following statement, as reprinted by Variety:
"I am heart-broken to lose a friend, a mentor, a guy so singular and dynamic you'd have to design a hurricaine to contain him. Jonathan was as quirky as his comedies and as deep as his dramas. He was pure energy, the unstoppable cheerleader for anyone creative. Just as passionate about music as he was about art, he was and will always be a champion of the soul. JD, most beloved, something wild, brother of love, director of the lambs. Love that guy. Love him so much."
