This is sad news, Richard Attenborough was one the greatest directors in history:

I believe that Gandhi is the greatest motion picture of all time.  The funeral scene is still in the record books as having used more extras than any other movie, 300,000!

 

Today's filmmakers could not even dream of executing such a scene. We've lost a true giant.

Just heard this myself. Amazing man huh. Looks like he lived his life to the fullest, and kept a very active awareness of the world around him. Although his passing is sad, there is a lot to celebrate. RIP dude, nice one ;)

An inspiration.

He was quite an amazing guy. Can't feel sad about it. We can celebrate his life and achievents. He gave a lot and now he's off somewhere else.
