Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

(On The Soft Skin) It's nice when somebody's actually so bold as to do something so obvious. We're always so worried about being so subtle, and "Oh, is this a cliché?" I think life is often a cliché; you find yourself in moments where you go, "If this was in a movie, people would say this is ridiculous, this is too much." And yet, it happens all the time.

Trivia:

His script for In the Company of Men (1997), began with the line "Let's hurt somebody" and developed from there. See more »

Trademark:

All his films usually consist of a cruel and vicious battle of the sexes with the men portraying unlikeable and trashy misogynists, and the women either crafty vixens or vulnerable victims. See more »

Star Sign:

Pisces
