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:

Met Quentin Tarantino at a video store called Video Archive where they both worked in the 1980s. See more »
