Brittany Murphy RIP

With the news of Murphy's untimely death, there comes shock but there also comes a kind of bizarre tale of a girl that had so much potential but never had the time to fully achieve it. I'm reminded of her performance as a junkie in Spun-which given the possible circumstances of her death- gives a whole new relevance to an actress' brutalized potential.

I would rather not go into detail and instead say I was sadly struck with the news of her death. Watch her as Eminem's love interest in 8 Mile or in Robert Rodriguez's Sin City or even the misbegotten Spun and you will catch the fearlessness and infitie possiblities that were vanished away today.
