Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

Cities like Atlanta are very advanced, but once you get outside the city, it feels like 100 years ago. Our producer is black, and we were standing in this room and somebody actually said, in front of him, "Can you tell the colored man to wait outside?" It's shocking. See more »

Trivia:

Declined a $500,000 offer to direct a film despite having no income at the time and living from money he borrowed from friends. He didn't believe the script was good and was afraid his reputation as a director would suffer. See more »

Trademark:

Protagonists looking for happiness within different viewpoints of others, while looking at themselves as well.

Star Sign:

Sagittarius
