Personal Quote:

As a feature film director you got to be a guarding dog of the whole production. You got to be able to hold 100 script pages in the head at the same time. If you miss a detail it's wasted. I don't know how the music video generation can affect the movie business, but I'm curious what feature films the English Chris Cunningham and the Swedish guy Jonas Åkerlund are going to make.

Trivia:

Was originally offered the chance to direct Human Nature (2001) after the success of Being John Malkovich (1999). He considered it, but declined, recommending fellow music video director Michel Gondry for the project. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently has a male character unexpectedly break into dance: John Malkovich in Being John Malkovich (1999), Christopher Walken in "Weapon of Choice", Theodore in Her (2013) See more »
