RIP Monte Hellman

Two-Lane Blacktop, Cockfighter, Ride in the Whirlwind, The Shooting, China 9 Liberty 37...these are some of Monte Hellman films, cult classics today. The director died at age 91 on April 20 2021. He helped Quentin Tarantino produce his first feature, Reservoir Dogs. He started out as an editor for Roger Corman, whre he met Jack Nicholson whom he directed in his quirky anti-westerns The Shooting and Ride in the Whirlind and in the war movies shot in Phillipines Back Door to Hell and Flight to Fury.

I met him briefly after the screening of Two-Lane Blacktop in Cannes Claasics, I think it was in 2005. We took a picture together, it-s on my print screens somewhere. Last film in 2010, Road to Nowhere.
