RIP Peter Yates

January 10, 2011

Man, another sad day for movie buffs. Folks, January 9th, 2010 marks the day we lost Peter Yates at the age of 81. Without Yates, the world would never have known Breaking Away, Bullitt, The Friends of Eddie Coyle, and without Krull, we would never know what a glaive was. Those are just a handful of highlights from one hell of a directing career that made life for all of us fans that much more badass and helped to mark a time when movies were actually cool. So rest in peace, Peter, you will be sorely missed and your life’s work will continue to be awesome.
