I woke up this morning, showered, and went out for brunch and grocery shopping. I passed by the newsstand, checked out the headlines, and there it was. Oh, hell.

This is a true tragedy of epic proportions for Malaysian cinema, and an utter loss for world cinema in general. Still, I suppose all that pales in comparison to the grief her family and loved ones must be feeling at the moment.

Rest in peace, Yasmin. Your loss will be felt.
