R.I.P. Peter Yates & Juan Piquer Simon

Peter Yates - Brit director of Bullitt, Breaking Away, Krull and Friends of Eddie Coyle (a terrific, underrated '70s crime pic with Robert Mitchum - highly recommend the Criterion DVD, as it hasn't been released on Region 4 yet).

Juan Piquer Simon - director of Pieces and Slugs. Clearly not the most reputable filmmaker of the pair, but man, his loony slasher Pieces has provided hours of joyously trashy entertainment for me, and I am forever grateful to him for that. Watch the trailer here:
