Bruce Sinofsky dies at age 58




Fuck man. I didn't know Bruce on a personal level but I like many people was definitely personally involved with his work. The first Paradise Lost film came out when I was in high school and like many people my age it had a profound impact on my life. The film was about a horrific triple child murder that led to an indictment and trial of three nonconformist boys based on questionable evidence. This was the first film that brought out a pure sense of hopelessness and rage in me. I was beyond effected, I was changed. I assume that I always had a lefty "fuck the man" leaning deep in my soul but this film brought it screaming to the surface. My voice has never carried a deep resonance but seeing Bruce's film.... it taught me to never hesitate when I felt I should raise it.


I like many others are in Bruce's debt. Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelly were wrongfully convicted and placed on death row for the murders at Robin Hood Hills. Bruce Sinofsky made a film that led to the eventual release of the West Memphis Three. That's making a difference. That's leaving a mark on the world. Bruce in now swimming in the heavens and while 58 years is far too short a life,  it was one with meaning and impact, a life that we should all aspire to.

here is the entire film
