The director's publicist said: "Sadly, I can confirm that Jonathan passed away early this morning in his Manhattan apartment, surrounded by his wife, Joanne Howard, and three children.

"He died from complications from oesophageal cancer., Aprl 26, 2017 - Jonathan Demme, director of The Silence of the Lambs, dies at 73.

That is sad news! And esophageal cancer sounds like a tough battle. There are some great tweets from famous people at the BBC article.

Thank you Mr. Demme for all of the entertainment you brought to life! Especially The Silence of the Lambs as that movie has stood the test of time and provides me "comfort food" when I am hungry for a great story!

Of the documentaries he made, one has stuck with me since I saw it in 1984, Talking Heads: Stop Making Sense.

Talking Heads - Life During Wartime

He loved music. You can see it the work that he did. I need to see the Neil Young documentary.

Another music video he did...

New Order - Perfect Kiss
