He was a talent, productive, and apparently a great guy.
I actually got to interview him once and he was one of the very few famous people who impressed me and made me think: this person deserves to be famous. Refined, gentlemanly, and very warm and genuine.
Wrote well, acted well, directed well. And he flew his own jet all over the world, which I thought was particularly badass.

He really impressed me with Sketches of Frank Gehry. His curiosity and enthusiasm came through in that film.
