This is the time of year where old people drop like flies, and 82-year-old auteur and film historian Peter Bogdanovich is sadly no exception. The Last Picture Show and What’s Up, Doc? creator died at 82 of natural causes, but not before giving us one of the most memorable “Sopranos” characters of all time in Eliot Kupferberg, who notably described Tony Soprano as a “Bluto type.”
RIP my dude, we are sad out here. Thank you for being the film nerd to end all film nerds.

RIP Peter Bogdonavich who made some of the best American movies of his era and was less proud of them than his three solid John Ford anecdotes
