Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Is the first director to do three live-action film adaptations of the DC Comics character Batman. See more »

Trademark:

The original scores of his films usually play over most of the film, or one piece of music will play over many small scenes, as if they are edited in a montage; there are few moments in his films when there is no music playing in the background. See more »
