Personal Quote:

[on his film The Contender (2000) :] The film is about the DNA of greatness. It's about what truly makes great people. Characters like Laine [ Joan Allen ] only come around once every 30 or 40 years. It's just not in her character to respond to the allegations. See more »

Trivia:

Journalist/film critic-turned-filmmaker. See more »

Trademark:

[Lurie pan] In a standard two-person conversation scene, instead of cutting between separate of shots of the actors speaking to each other, Lurie will often pan the camera from side-to-side to give it a one-take feel.

Star Sign:

Taurus
