Trivia:

As of 2018 she has directed two actors to Academy Award-nominated performances: Jeremy Renner (Best Actor, The Hurt Locker (2008)), and Jessica Chastain (Best Actress, Zero Dark Thirty (2012)). See more »

Often uses first person perspectives: Blue Steel (1990), (Wire trip scenes in Strange Days (1995) and the chase scenes in Point Break (1991)) and The Hurt Locker (2008). See more »
