Personal Quote:

[on Quentin Tarantino doing his Top Gun (1986) speech in the film Sleep with Me (1994)] Important lesson learned. Intellectual properties can be taken from you if you put them in the air. Result is to never speak to anyone else ever again and withdraw from society. Keep few friends and speak to them rarely. See more »


Wrote a script entitled "Pandemonium Reigns" which was never produced, but significant elements were later used to make Pulp Fiction (1994). See more »


Frequently works with Eric Stoltz. See more »
