Personal Quote:

My dream would be to make a movie with Stephen Sondheim. I'm proud that I got him to do the music for 'Stavisky'. See more »

Trivia:

For his 12th birthday, he was given an 8mm camera and began to make home movies, with his friends in starring roles. He thought that his interest in flashbacks, and what he would dub "flashforwards", may have been inspired by his childhood love of Milton Caniff's long-running action cartoon "Terry and the Pirates.".
