The goal in life is to be a Scorsese - one of the all-time greats in your field; widely respected and loved; go from an angry, coked-out young man to magnanimous elder statesman; get to date Isabella Rossellini and Illeana Douglas.

But if one had to choose between being a spiteful genius jerkwad like Hitchcock or live a life like Joel Schumacher - make a bunch of mediocre, but memorable movies; go from street urchin to working on a fashion line to then Hollywood costume designer, screenwriter, director, and producer; be a well-liked, seemingly decent, friendly human being; have lots of sex and do tons of drugs - Schumacher's path seems a lot more fun and interesting way to spend one's time on earth.

RIP to a rare breed. And in lieu of the typical obit, please read the sprawling interview he did last year in which he is at his most fabulous, catty, and engaging: Vulture.com.

How could you possibly have sex with 20,000 dudes?!

Decades ago, I interned for Joel Schumacher's company one summer on the WB lot. Never met him, but I was appreciative of the opportunity anyway. May he RIP.

His adaptation of The Phantom wasn't bad. RIP

... and I thought Wilt's numbers were skewed.
