Personal Quote:

[on Andrei Tarkovsky]: Andrey Tarkovsky was one of the greatest directors of recent years. He's dead, like most of them. That is, most of them are dead or have stopped making films. Or else, somewhere along the way they've irretrievably lost something, some individual sort of imagination, intelligence, or way of narrating a story. Tarkovsky was certainly one of those who hadn't lost this. See more »

Trivia:

He was made a Fellow of the British Film Institute in recognition of his outstanding contribution to film culture. See more »
