A real loss. From "Bonnie and Clyde" to "Dog Day Afternoon" to "Wonder Boys", she was simply extraordinary at her job and refused to work on overly-mechanical movies whose directors wanted mindless MTV-frenetic editing. Surviving her are two more top-notch female editors, Anne V. Coates ("Lawrence of Arabia") and Thelma Schoonmaker ("Raging Bull").

RIP
