Matt writes: On January 7th, the movie world lost one of its brightest lights, filmmaker Michael Apted (1941-2021), who died at age 79. Renowned for his groundbreaking "Up" series of documentaries, which followed the lives of British children every seven years as they became adults, Apted also helmed various sublime narrative features, including 1980's Loretta Lynn biopic, "Coal Miner's Daughter," that earned Sissy Spacek a Best Actress Oscar.
