Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

The truth is, whether your film is about the great mythological character you have to do right, or it's a little movie that nobody ever heard of, you still approach it like it's the most important thing in the world. But failing goes with the territory. Filmmakers are like gunslingers, and you don't win every duel. See more »

Trivia:

When meeting cinematographer Vittorio Storaro on the set of Francis Ford Coppola's One from the Heart (1981), Storaro was reported to have exclaimed to Furie, "You don't have to tell me who you are! I've stolen from you!" He explained that when The Ipcress File (1965) was released in Italy, it was one of the most influential films for Italian cinematographers just getting started. See more »
