Personal Quote:

[on the film adaptations of Bret Easton Ellis books Less Than Zero (1987) and American Psycho (2000)] Those two movies have stripped away his literary devices, and the filmmakers are just trying to tell the story.

Trivia:

Was originally going to direct RPM (1998), but backed out of the project after the script had been re-written countless times. See more »
