Personal Quote:

I think anytime you look at science fiction in movies, there are key touchstones; Metropolis (1927), Blade Runner (1982), 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968). Whenever you're talking about getting off the planet, 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) is somewhat unavoidable. See more »

Trivia:

Described the IMAX format, which he is particularly fond of, as "virtual reality without the goggles". See more »

Trademark:

Very frequently his films contain blackmail, attempted blackmail or a reference to blackmail. See more »
