Personal Quote:

Probably my four favorite directors are Werner Herzog, Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Stanley Kubrick and Luis Buñuel, because with all of their work you can think beyond the edges of the film. They're not films that dictate to you, this is what you must think. They're all films that have compelling stories, but there are thoughts beyond the films themselves. See more »

Trivia:

In an earlier draft of the screenplay for Back to the Future (1985), his character, George McFly, went on to become a world-class boxer instead of a writer. See more »
