LOS ANGELES — Peter Bogdanovich, the revered director of touchstone 1970s films such as “The Last Picture Show,” “What’s Up, Doc?” and “Paper Moon,” died Thursday of natural causes at his Los Angeles home. He was 82.

The two-time Oscar nominee’s death was relayed by daughter Antonia Bogdanovich to the Hollywood Reporter. The Los Angeles Times has reached out to her representatives for confirmation.

“Movies used to be something powerful,” Bogdanovich told the L.A. Times, in 2015. “It’s been a bit ruined now.”
