Filmmaker Theo Angelopoulos Dies At 76

Critic David Thomson listed Theo Angelopoulos among a handful of truly great living filmmakers. His movies were epic in length and addressed epic periods in Greek history and mythology. They were among the most visually stunning movies made in the 20th century. He won numerous awards, including the Grand Jury Prize at Cannes in 1995 for Ulysses' Gaze, which starred Harvey Keitel. Angelopoulos died Tuesday after being struck by a motorcycle. He was 76.
