    One of the best actors I have had the privilege of watching.

    Rest in peace, Sir John Hurt.

    I remember him well and his performance in The Elephant Man really moved me to want to watch better cinema and be a better human being.

    John Hurt: Remembering the Master of Outsiders

    For a man whose first claim to screen immortality came when an extraterrestrial freak of nature ripped a hole in his chest and screeched bloody murder in Alien, John Hurt was a hell of an actor. "The alien won the Oscar," a laughing Hurt told me nearly three decades later, referring to the Academy Award that Ridley Scott's 1979 film took home for H.R. Giger's visual effects. It might be the only time in his 55-year career that anyone, let alone a creature that looked like a penis with teeth, had upstaged him. No one got a bigger kick out of that than Hurt.


    He was pretty damn great.
