Reminds me of "Drowning by Numbers". A delightful and very English movie about multiple murders, the Michael Nyman score always puts me in a good mood.
Yeah he should have gone out like Dick Shawn. He died while doing a crazy act on stage before an auditorium full of college students. He suffered a massive heart attack, spasmodically flopping around on the stage for a few seconds before expiring. The kids in the audience erupted in hysterical laughter for several minutes before they realized it wasn't an act.
Hopefully I don't die typing a post about Whitby.
