Personal Quote:

I do not feel that at any time it was ever my decision to make any of the movies I made, although I don't regret them. See more »

Wrote a revisionist remake of The Wild Geese (1978). The project was essentially a modern day mercenary saga with meanspirited twists; it stayed in limbo despite the support of Roger Moore and the original movie's backers (Asia Argento was also in the frame for the female lead). See more »

Trademark:

Typical elements of his movies are extreme violence, occultism, oneiricism and visionariness. See more »
