Oscar to Suicide in One Year: Tracing the 'Searching for Sugar Man' Director's Tragic Final Days
After the death of Malik Bendjelloul, who threw himself in front of a subway train, a THR writer heads to Sweden to talk to his friends, who reveal the perfectionist's quirks -- from eating the same breakfast for six months to walking one lap around his apartment before and after work -- and open up about his fear, doubt and their own surprise: "He was the least likely to take his life."
After the Oscars, Bendjelloul and girlfriend Brittany Huckabee hit the Governors Ball.
