I've just read his last words. He truly was an amazing man. It's sad he left too soon.

yesterday marked the fifth anniversary of Kon's death. I still remember how devastated I felt on that day. and until this day, I find myself going back to his works all the time. and each time I find myself mesmerized by the sheer amount of talent and effort this brilliant man put in his work. You might have passed away but your works will forever be a part of my life. I can only aspire to be as devoted to anything I do with my life as you were to your work. Thank you so much for all the inspiration and I will always remember you as a great inspiration and one of the greatest movie directors of all time.
