Tullio Kezich 1928-2009

Italian film critic and screenwriter, Tullio Kezich, has died at the age of 80, reports Colleen Barry for Associated Press.
Tullio Kezich, a prominent film critic for the daily Corriere della Sera who befriended and collaborated with Italian directing greats Federico Fellini and Ermanno Olmi, died Monday. He was 80.

...Kezich died in his adopted home of Rome, where he hung out during the Dolce Vita days with his close friend Fellini, about whom he later wrote the biography "Federico Fellini: His Life and Work."
As Reuters reports, the Venice Film Festival has announced a new essay competition for young Italian writers in his honour.
