Director. Actor. Producer. Through the years in pictures with the late, great, jack-of-all-trades filmmaker
''You think that not being caught in a lie is the same thing as telling the truth.'' So went Sydney Pollack's favorite line of dialogue, which he reused in various forms to ideal effect in a number of the subtly tense, slightly off-kilter movies that he made over nearly half a century. The filmmaker a director and producer by trade but an actor by training (and occasional trade) died Monday at his home in Los Angeles, at age 73. He leaves behind a body of work in cinema and television virtually unparalleled in modern movies, one that inspired audiences while seamlessly crisscrossing genres. Let's take a look at Pollack's career through the years.
