Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I don't have a typical filmmaker background. I didn't grow up with a super eight camera or a video camera. I didn't start cutting movies when I was four or five. I actually didn't really start to get into the research of film until I was much older. I decided I wanted to direct a lot earlier than I started to do the research, which is really strange, but it is the case.

Trivia:

Casablanca (1942), Sweet Smell of Success (1957), La Dolce Vita (1960), The Godfather: Part II (1974) and On the Waterfront (1954) are some of his favorite films. See more »
