Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

The truth is, whether your film is about the great mythological character you have to do right, or it's a little movie that nobody ever heard of, you still approach it like it's the most important thing in the world. But failing goes with the territory. Filmmakers are like gunslingers, and you don't win every duel. See more »

Trivia:

He was personally asked by Rodney Dangerfield to direct My 5 Wives (2000). Dangerfield had a rocky history with most of his directors, and left many sets in disgust, never to return to many of them. Furie was Dangerfield's favorite directing collaborator. See more »

Trademark:

Long takes that play out in intricately composed master shots (some clock in at over five minutes in length) See more »

Star Sign:

Pisces
