RIP: Michael Winner

British-born director Michael Winner has sadly passed away. Winner was responsible for many Oliver Reed films, most notably The Jokers, as well as the Robert Mitchum remake of The Big Sleep and the cult horror film The Sentinel. Most famously he will be remembered as the director of Death Wish, the Charles Bronson revenge classic that to this day still inspires re-imaginings and remakes.

The BBC have a nice obituary dedicated to him.
