Personal Quote:

In an ideal world, I'd bounce between big projects and no-budget TV dramas with fantastic scripts. A lot of Hollywood films tend to be bloated, bombastic, loud. At the same time, I do like the infrastructure of making a blockbuster; it's like having a big train set. See more »


His favorite directors are David Lean, Ken Loach and Martin Scorsese. See more »
