Personal Quote:

Whatever happened to Search and Discovery in the arts of today? Artists must behave like archaeologists if the guts of visionary filmmaking can happen. They will have to return to the depths of the collective unknown to find out what we're all about. From that universal dream our most individual and forceful voices can emerge.


Directed one Oscar nominated performance: Willem Dafoe in Shadow of the Vampire (2000).
