Director Sydney Pollack Dies

Oscar winning director Sydney Pollack died of cancer on Monday. He was 73.

One of the things I admire most about Sydney’s work is that he is a real storyteller. While the movie landscape changed so much over his long career, he always made movies that were story centered. He may be known to many as an actor’s director, but to me, he is a wonderful storyteller.
