Seattle Loses Bill Kennedy, The Best Friend a Movie Lover Could Ever Have

Bill never found a movie, any movie, to be a waste of time.



A beautiful tribute and memory. Thank you.


What a lovely man. He will be missed.


"... I feel like we couldn’t have shared more through the films we watched together, the way they affected us, and the observations we shared with each other. We were sharing who we were, using film as the mechanism, even if we didn’t know it at the time."

Pauline Kael wrote that friendships can be made, and lost, over reactions to movies. It's true. (A longtime buddy once told me he didn't think 'Repo Man' was funny. Things were never the same between us.)

I'm sorry Mr. Kennedy is gone. I'm glad he was your friend.
