From Hot Fuzz director Edgar Wright’s tribute to the late Edward Woodward, who died in Cornwall today, aged 79:
I digress slightly, but let me say that if you [want] to pay tribute to Edward today, then simply watch the original version of The Wicker Man. It is a film that he was very proud of and I think that it ranks as one of the best British films of all time. It certainly has an indisputably harrowing ending.
This man is responsible for one of the funniest movie lines of all time (which I think takes place during the scene that Wright and Woodward seem to be discussing above). And just for the sake of it, The Wicker Man is an excellent movie.
