He was only 40 years old.
BRATISLAVA. He wrote so well that any journalist could envy him. But no one envied him, because everyone felt it was an exceptional case.
Simply immense talent – and moreover, a great person, an excellent colleague and friend.
The report on his death was brought by Denník N, was written by his colleague Oliver Rehák. He told the SME newspaper that his family had confirmed it to him.
Although Miloš Krekovič was a quiet man who seemed shy, he did not happen to speak all day. Oliver’s confirmed premonition was confirmed on Sunday.
He was a year late, no one was bothered
Miloš studied aesthetics. The closest to him was the film he wrote about, when he joined the SME daily in 2008 and with a short break he stayed in it until 2014.
Editors dream of someone like that.
There was no need to modify a single sentence in his texts, and moreover, they were written with an obvious knowledge of the context. Not only film, but also social and political.
He was not only surprised by the original look he always found when writing about films. He was also surprised by the conversations he brought.
In the newsroom, we pulled a little out of him. We told him we didn’t believe he was really doing them. Milos, you can’t hear you talking. So how can respondents answer you?
When he was among his own in the game, he often did not join the debate, he just laughed happily. But when he had a taste, he was a great entertainer and, of course, he could also talk.
He was also an equal partner for a big star, such as the Simposon screenwriter Mike Reiss. One of the reasons was that he had an overview of art and pop culture.
This aspect of his texts easily overshadowed the fact that they were sometimes out of date. In the editorial office, we still laugh with laughter at how Miloš wrote about the phenomenon of the Godfather. He wanted to fit it into the fortieth anniversary of the epic Francis F. Coppol, and he didn’t notice that he was all year late.
The text was therefore published on the forty-first anniversary. But no one was bothered, he read on one gulp.
He also liked bad movies
Miloš grew up in a family of Bratislava intellectuals. His brother Slávo is dedicated to music, he is an expert on the alternative, experimental scene. The family environment in which education was the basis, of course, was also reflected in it.
But Miloš also liked lower forms, he also liked to watch unsuccessful films – and then he commented on them for a few days with a great sense of humor.
Bombous. This word settled in our internal language when he saw the continuation of the Czech cult of Bony and peace. It was really very bad, but when you saw it with him, at least you laughed.
We knew that Miloš Krekovič was educated and funny. But maybe we didn’t know how sensitive he was. Saying goodbye to him when he barely managed to celebrate his forties will be difficult not only for his loved ones, but also for his former colleagues and certainly for his readers.
