Paul Mazursky, the Oscar-nominated writer-director who excelled at mining the urban middle class for laughs as well as tears in such movies as "Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice," "Blume in Love," "An Unmarried Woman" and "Down and Out in Beverly Hills," has died. He was 84.
Mazursky died of pulmonary cardiac arrest Monday at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, according to family spokeswoman Nancy Willen.
A gentle satirist of contemporary society, Mazursky at his best chronicled the social trends of the late 1960s and the '70s, including its touchy-feely self-improvement fads, shifting rules for love and sex, drug experimentation and other excesses.

His performance in 2 Days In The Valley always touches me. RIP.
Enjoyed his work. RIP.
RIP to the guy and prayers for his family, but...
Watch “An Unmarried Woman” if you want to see cinematic feminist drivel and barf.
Down and Out in Beverly Hills was pretty good. I’d watch it again.
So many of his films focused on spouse swapping, affairs or divorces.
