September 21st, 2016

Hollywood director-writer Curtis Hanson, like many others, got his start working with Roger Corman, writing the Lovecraft based The Dunwich Horror. Hanson’s breakthrough film was LA Confidental (1997), though he had a string of effective thrillers in the late 1980s, and early 1990s (The Bedroom Window, Bad Influence, The Hand That Rocks the Cradle). Hanson died of natural causes.
