Thank you for your words and musical tribute, this was cathartic. Dan was an old friend of mine. He was indeed a great man.

Hi Robin - Couldn't agree more - lovely fella, just doesn't seem real hes gone. Just shocking. A great man indeed.

Hi Electra - I'm really pleased you enjoyed Dan's movie - he was a great film maker - all his movies are worth seeing - a great talent and a great bloke. We miss him.

Please excuse me for contacting you so suddenly and I hope my English will be understood.

At first, I am so sorry your loss. My name is Tapas Yamada, Japanese, just an ordinary film fan. The reason why I’m leaving my comment here is that we are going to put his film “Section 44” with other films on the film festival tomorrow in Japan. And after the show, we’ll have a little talk session about the films. As I’m the MC of the talk session, I was researching on him and his works. Then I found your blog here.
I promise we all are going to enjoy his film.
If you or his family has any message for the Japanese audience, please write it here, I’ll deliver them.

If you can say words to that effect we'd really appreciate it.
