    May he rest in peace. Whatever caused such stress for him must have seemed too much to overcome :(

    My brother's going into film. He's directed a few short documentaries and a short film, and the stresses of producing/directing/writing are an incredible burden, since he's super self-critical. Rest in Peace Tony Scott.

    Oh god!

    That's very shocking. :eek: His movies are great and decent, but now he killed himself from falling off the LA bridge in stress.

    RIP :'(

    at 68 years old??

    people who make it to 50+ rarely commit suicide unless they're already dying of some untreatable disease/cancer.
    I wonder what in the hell could have drove him to do it :(

    RIP.

    I'm not sure how untreatable illness affects things, but this was interesting:

    Via National Institute of Mental Health.

    you've never heard of Dr. Kevorkian?

    but yea that's interesting.
    sure seems like the opposite. probably because elderly suicide isn't as fun to report as young suicide; tragic sensationalism and all.

    Hmm well his movies ranged from Great to decent and they all made money so he wasn't broke.

    Was probably either family issues or he found out he was dying from some cancer and knew it wasn't treatable.

    That's...pretty surprising. The guy directed some good movies, a few of which I like quite a lot (Crimson Tide, True Romance, ect). Kind of a bizarre (and sad) thing to hear.

    Sad. RIP. They said they found a suicide note but I don't think it has been said what was in it.

    Ok, if you get diagnosed with cancer and they say you have a month to live, then I can almost understand.

    But if you have years to live, then spend it with family! It's so selfish to leave all your loved ones behind like that.
