Personal Quote:

I've had movies bomb with terrible reviews, I've had movies make a lot of money with terrible reviews, I've had movies get good reviews and make money. And I like it best when the movies do well and the reviewers like them. I love magazines and film critics, so I eat it up. I'm not one of those people who says "I never read anything". I generally read all of it. See more »


Brokeback Mountain (2005) is amongst his favorite films. See more »


The films he directs are either near or well over two hours, uncharacteristic for comedies. See more »
