Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[about his mentor David Cronenberg] David knew I wanted to direct and it was my goal. He let me into his world and I could ask him any questions I wanted on what he was doing. I'd ask, "Why did you block it like that?" or "What were you thinking here?' He really allowed me to pick his brain.

Trivia:

Cites David Cronenberg as his mentor and idol.
