Satoshi Kon In Memoriam

Yesterday was a terribly sad day for the world, as Satoshi Kon, one of the greatest and most visionary modern animated film directors passed away at the relatively young age of 46 due to pancreatic cancer. Kon's work often dealt with themes of psychology (especially identity), the duality of reality/illusion, and the metaphysical portrayed in a fantastical sometimes surreal narrative and visual style. R.I.P., Satoshi. This is a real tragedy and a shame the world was robbed of the future films you would have (and should have) gone on to make.
