Personal Quote:

People want to see documentaries, but there's a disconnect between that desire and the exhibitors out there. We're not asking for charity. This could be on the 15th screen of a multiplex that would otherwise have the sixth showing of the new Harry Potter movie. Some of these films make $200 or $300 per screen. See more »

Trivia:

2007 - Ranked #27 on EW's The 50 Smartest People in Hollywood. See more »

Trademark:

Famous for his provocative populist documentaries that are unapologetic attacks on social wrongs, including those he considers callous business corporations and opportunistic right wing politicians. See more »
