New York Times: James Lyons, a film editor whose most notable collaborations were with the director Todd Haynes on several feature films, including “Safe,” “Velvet Goldmine” and “Far From Heaven,” died Thursday in Manhattan. He was 46 and lived in Brooklyn Heights.
The cause was squamous cell cancer, which followed more than a decade of treatment for H.I.V., his brother Patrick said.
Mr. Lyons, often billed as Jim, gained notice for both his acting in and editing of “Poison,” Mr. Haynes’s 1991 triptych, which won the grand jury prize at the 1991 Sundance Film Festival.
