Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[Asked about who influenced his directing style] I don't know if you've noticed this in my films, but I think I'm influenced by Franz Kafka. I like his work very much. "What would Kafka do in this scene?" I don't think like that. The surrealism and the absurdity, I began to like those things because of his work. See more »
