No idea of the validity of that though.

I can't say that I'm that familiar with his work but anyone with the creative talent to make a film like Perfect Blue will be missed. He was only 46 or 47 years old too.

Full translation of his last letter.

http://www.makikoitoh.com/journal/satos ... last-words

Studio madhouse have said they will finish his final film.

Comments by Helen McCarthy:
Quote:
At 47, Miyazaki hadn't finished Totoro,
Tezuka hadn't created Black Jack,
Kurosawa hadn't made Yojimbo...


A rather apt quote here would be the light that burns twice as bright burns half as long. Kon had been hugely successful in his work.
