Did You Know?

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:

He is a keen admirer of the New German Cinema, particularly the films of Rainer Werner Fassbinder and Wim Wenders. See more »
