Personal Quote:

I have no demons. I was always a nature boy. I loved nature and animals and insects. And [Brandon] proved to have that same kind of sensibility, which undoubtedly has something to do with the kind of movies I've made and that he seems to be making as well. It comes from a real affection for the strangeness of animal life on earth. I's very pure and very direct. See more »

Trivia:

He once said that Scanners (1981) was the most frustrating directing job he'd ever had. See more »
