Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I try to feel compassion for my characters and I consider them unique people and unique human beings. That's what I want to feel about my characters, I want to know that he or she is unique. That was what made Buttoners (1997) rather popular, this belief that every small person is unique. The audience can identify with a guy that's really special but just like everybody else.
