Personal Quote:

I think people who make movies start out with kind of lofty ideals. But it's work that conspires to put you into a cold, clinical professional mode very quickly. What I keep telling myself is that in making any movie, I've got to reflect and convey to the people I work with the reasons why I wanted to get into the business in the first place.[1988] See more »

Trivia:

Was the original director of WarGames (1983) but was replaced by John Badham. Several of Brest's scenes still remain in the film. See more »
