I've been going on a bit of a social media mourning frenzy today. She was-no, is-someone I had a lot of admiration and respect for, and the reports as to its nature make the news worse.

Did George Clinton ever get a permit for the Mothership, or did he get Snoop Dogg to fetch one two decades late?

Very sad. She certainly was a giant of cinema. I saw her, now final I suppose, film NO HOME MOVIE with Peter Chattaway at TIFF.
