Personal Quote:

I will be forever stuck in classic rock. I listen to The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, David Bowie. I have a soft spot for '80s metal, because I grew up in Massachusetts, so I listened to Guns N' Roses, AC/DC and Iron Maiden. I like weirder, more obscure stuff too like Devo. See more »

Trivia:

He was attached to direct Baywatch (2017) for one year and wanted to make it an absurd comedy with Richard Kelly writing the screenplay with him. The project stalled out at Paramount and Roth and the producers parted ways on very friendly terms, with Roth taking a "Co-Producer" main title credit for his year of work on the film. See more »

Trademark:

His classical Filmmaking style. Roth photographs, edits, and scores his films like 1970s dramas. He does not use the modern "MTV" style of fast cutting, and prefers the filmmaking techniques not to be noticed, and to take a back seat to the story and performances. See more »
