Personal Quote:

There's always been a lot of pressure and tension on the line. If Pi (1998) didn't work out, I have no idea what my career would be. I don't think I would have gotten another shot at it.

Trivia:

Completed The Fountain (2006), working on "Flicker" and "Lone Wolf and Cub" scripts. See more »

Trademark:
