Akkad remembered

The Atlantic takes a look at the career of producer/director Moustapha Akkad, who was killed in the Amman hotel ballroom bombing in November. Akkad’s career spanned the Halloween franchise, as well as Islamic-themed films like ‘The Message’ and ‘Lion of the Desert.’ A sad loss not only for his loved ones and humanity in general, but for a certain idea of Hollywood, in which cheerfully exploitative schlock can co-exist with more serious projects.
