Alan Parker 1944-2020. The man could direct anything: musicals, big budget films, indie films, historical films, adults or kids. A rare talent indeed. Your body of work speaks for itself. Rest in peace, Sir Alan Parker.

As an adult Mississippi Burning is a classic, as a child its Bugsy Malone.

Good riddance
In honor of Alan Parker, I'm going to watch Pink Floyd The Wall. Nobody stop me!
Made adverts interesting, musicals enjoyable, Turkish prisons terrifying and even brought back film noir in 1987 with the criminally underrated Angel Heart

A man with a Knighthood from a dodgy royal family, who made a film with exclusively child actors, mysteriously happens to 'die' while there's a global exposing of an elite pedophile child sex trafficking ring generating $100bln+ per year, that has deep dark roots throughout Hollywood and the film industry in general going back decades... hmmm
