Filmmaker and fellow Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro remembered Bogdonavich for his contributions to preserving film history.

Profoundly influential, he helped define cinema in the 1970s

A fond memory from Barbra Streisand.

He was a loyal friend.

I loved this quote from him on the effect of movies.

On a personal level, one of my favorite movies ever is Mask. As an outcast myself, I identified with Eric Stoltz’s character. The movie taught me the importance of accepting others and loving yourself for who you are.
