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:

In 1999 his espionage thriller The Ipcress File (1965) was included at #59 on the BFI's list of the 100 greatest British films of the 20th century. See more »

Trademark:

Shoots through and around foregrounded objects to offer a "refracted" view of the action. The style is overt and especially prevalent in The Ipcress File (1965), The Appaloosa (1966) and The Naked Runner (1967), his Wild Angle Trilogy. See more »
