Sally Menke 1953 - 2010

Very sad news about Tarantino's most important collaborator, his editor Sally Menke, who has worked on all his films. She was found dead yesterday, possibly on a hike, with the cause of death possibly the heat waves enveloping Los Angeles. I feel terrible about this news, both because she seemed too young, but also on a purely selfish level that I will not get to see her incredible work on the next Tarantino film. To my amateur eyes she was one of the great editors working today. One of her sequences below.
