Personal Quote:

[on making Blue Valentine (2010)] There was one day where we were shooting on the bus. That's a bit of a movie trope - the encounter on a bus - and yet when we shot that scene, we had a rainbow come out of nowhere. When stuff like that happens, and I know it sounds kind of corny, but you really feel that you are doing the right thing at the right time. See more »

Cianfrance is a drummer and has blown his eardrums out. He has tinnitus, a constant ringing in his ears. His condition inspired him to direct the film Metalhead (2018), which has been in production since 2009. See more »
