I had the pleasure of having lunch with Albert Maysles in New York quite a few years ago. He was a really nice fellow and a wonderful storyteller.
If you haven’t checked out any of his and his brothers films you owe it to yourself to check them out. Among my favorites are Salesman, Gimme Shelter and Grey Gardens, but there are so many more.
Here is a link to a nice article in the New York Times.
RIP. You will be missed.
