5-Time Oscar Nominee Paul Mazursky Dies At 84

Paul Mazursky 5 Time Oscar Nominee Paul Mazursky Dies At 84

We’re sad to report that the influential film director, screenwriter and actor Paul Mazursky has passed away at the age of 84 from pulmonary cardiac arrest. In all, Mazursky received five Academy Award nominations, four for his screenplay writing on ‘Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice,’ ‘Harry and Tonto,’ ‘An Unmarried Woman’ and ‘Enemies, a Love Story,’ and once as producer of ‘An Unmarried Woman’ (nominated for Best Picture). Other notable films written and directed by Mazursky include ‘Moscow on the Hudson’ and ‘Down and Out in Beverly Hills.’

Legendary film critic Roger Ebert was a particular fan of Paul Mazursky’s, giving six of his films the optimal four stars in his reviews. In 1986, Ebert stated that “Mazursky has a way of making comedies that are more intelligent and relevant than most of the serious films around.” Mr Mazursy is survived by his wife Betsy, who had bits parts in several of his films, and daughter Jill, a writer-producer who also appeared in several Mazursky films. RIP to one of the best.

The various trailers and TV spots for the film have already featured some great songs in the form of Blue Swede’s ‘Hooked On A Feeling’ and Norman Greenbaum’s ‘Spirit in the Sky,’ and if the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ soundtrack is half as good as its cover and those aforementioned two tracks, we should be in for a treat. UPDATE: tracklist added.
