Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on 9 Songs (2004)] Cinema has been extremely conservative and prudish. I wanted to go to the opposite extreme and show the relationship only through sex. See more »

Trivia:

He was replaced by Danny Cannon on Goal! The Dream Begins (2005) after the producers saw some of Winterbottom's early footage and found he was making it more like a documentary drama rather than a straight drama as they wanted. See more »

Trademark:

Because of the improvisational element of much of his work, his films often use hand-held (sometimes digital) photography with roughly edited jumps between scenes and locations (Butterfly Kiss (1995), Wonderland (1999), With or Without You (1999), The Claim (2000), 24 Hour Party People (2002), In This World (2002), 9 Songs (2004)).
