Great Filmmaking Losses

I was still fairly reeling from the loss of one of the filmmakers whose work inspired me to become one myself ("Ingmar Bergman, master of the art of darkness, dies at 89") when I read this morning that Michaelangelo Antonioni died within hours of Bergman ("Antonioni, film's 'poet of ennui', dies at 94").

Obviously, it's a sad day and a loss for the artistic community. On the other hand, these men lived to ripe old ages and made many great films. Which doesn't make it any less sad -- but at least it's not tragic.
