This week has brought sad and perplexing news as we heard that Tony Scott, successful British director had apparently taken his own life by jumping off Los Angeles’ Vincent Thomas bridge. His 30-plus year career includes film work as a director (Top Gun, Crimson Tide) and producer (The Grey, The A-Team), not to over look his more recent efforts (along side his brother Ridley) as a TV producer (The Good Wife, Numb3rs). He will be greatly missed.
In celebration of his work, below is a list of my favorite Tony Scott films and television.
10. Man on Fire (2004) (producer)
09. Unstoppable (2010) (producer)
08. Where the Money Is (2000) (executive producer)
07. Revenge (1990) (Director)
06. In Her Shoes (2005) (executive producer)
05. The Fan (1996) (Director)
04. The A-Team (2010) (producer)
03. Enemy of the State (1998) (Director)
02. The Good Wife (TV series) (executive producer – 65 episodes)
01. True Romance (1993) (Director)
