Personal Quote:

[on his cinematic influences] The New German Cinema during my years in the [Oxford university] cinema club. Fassbinder [Rainer Werner Fassbinder], Wenders [Wim Wenders]. In shooting Butterfly Kiss (1995) I thought of their way of filming places that weren't cinematographic in and of themselves, of their sense of the atmosphere of a place.

Trivia:

Went to college with director Marc Evans (Resurrection Man (1998), My Little Eye (2002), Trauma (2004)). Winterbottom's company Revolution Films produced Marc Evans' second film Resurrection Man (1998). 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)).
