Personal Quote:

When I was at university, the film club always showed In the Realm of the Senses (In the Realm of the Senses (1976)) at the start of a new year to get people to join. It was full of explicit sex, yet you can buy it in HMV now. See more »

Trivia:

Frequently works with actors Christopher Eccleston, Shirley Henderson, John Simm and James Nesbitt. See more »

Trademark:

Because of the improvisational element of much of his work, his films often use hand-held (sometimes digital) photography with roughly edited jumps between scenes and locations (Butterfly Kiss (1995), Wonderland (1999), With or Without You (1999), The Claim (2000), 24 Hour Party People (2002), In This World (2002), 9 Songs (2004)).
