Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Directed television commercials for over 10 years prior to his directing debut Gattaca (1997) See more »

Trademark:

The plot of his films often revolve around artificial reality, such as gene manipulation in Gattaca (1997), the life of "Truman" in The Truman Show (1998), the computer-generated actress in S1m0ne (2002), the nature of aging in "In Time" and the MO of the antagonists of "The Host"
