Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Former movie critic for KABC Radio in Los Angeles. He was also formerly president of the Broadcast Film Critics Association in L.A. He stepped down from KABC when he went into production on The Contender (2000) because of possible conflicts of interest. He is also a graduate of West Point. See more »

Trademark:

[Lurie pan] In a standard two-person conversation scene, instead of cutting between separate of shots of the actors speaking to each other, Lurie will often pan the camera from side-to-side to give it a one-take feel.
