Trivia:

He received an Art Award at the 2011 Ischia Global Film and Music Festival, and sang his acceptance speech. Roth had not planned on singing, but the band started playing during the awards ceremony, and he was called on stage during the music. Roth dedicated his award to his favorite Italian comedy star, Bombolo, and got the crowd in Ischia on the beach chanting and singing Bombolo's name. See more »

Trademark:

He photographs in 2:35 aspect ratio to give his films a 'bigger budget' feel. Roth prefers the widescreen frame, which John Carpenter used in his early films. See more »
