Donald Richie died on Tuesday, at age 88. The only obituaries I've been able to find say little more.

Also, an interview with Richie, from the Kyoto Journal, from 1999:

Reading that guy's interview with the Kyoto Journal, I can really see the picture he was painting of Japan's future. Kinda bleak Sad, but i think that's going to be the case for all of us.

R.I.P Donald.

I'm in the middle of Richie's book on Kurosawa; this is really helping me in my own WiP. Kurosawa was an amazing screenwriter as well as a director, and I wouldn't have had any idea if it wasn't for Donald.
