I was shocked to hear about the suicide of British born Hollywood director Tony Scott . He committed suicide on August 19 , 2012 in California , U.S.A. at the age of 68 .

Investigators from the Los Angeles Police Department’s Harbor Division found contact information and notes to loved ones in his car, which was parked on the bridge, and a suicide note at his office.

I loved Tony Scott’s ” Top Gun ”  but as a connoisseurs of cinema I was more familiar with the cinema of his elder brother Sir Ridley Scott .

Sir Ridley Scott

[ Born 30 November 1937 ]

He is an English film director and producer. His best-known films include  Alien (1979) , sci-fi classic Blade Runner (1982) , Thelma & Louise (1991) , best picture Oscar winner Gladiator (2000) , Black Hawk Down (2001) , Matchstick Men (2003) , Kingdom of Heaven (2005) , American Gangster (2007) , Robin Hood (2010) , and Prometheus (2012) .

There are many theories floating about the suicide of Tony Scott . Most prominent theory is that he did not want his family to suffer because of his cancer and subsequent slow death , so he decided to end his life . This theory is vehemently denied by his family .

No one will ever know the true reason behind his suicide . But it is saddening that such a brilliant director decided to end his life in this way .
