Tony Scott 1944 - 2012

Sorrows come not in single spies, but in battalions...

El Tarangu was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Tony Scott. We've always had a soft-spot for his unashamedly populist, slickly-produced films. have this nice little tribute, featuring the first short film Scott ever directed, a more recent short film (Clive Owen playing opposite James Brown - how odd), and an interview with the man himself.

We would be remiss in not mentioning Tony Scott's most famous work. Top Gun, a film that caused a generation of self-assured, red-blooded men to rethink some basic principles with this scene:

You can be my wing-man any time, Tony.
