Personal Quote:

What I think happens today is that a lot of filmmakers look at other films that are retro pieces, like L.A. Confidential, and say, oh, that's period. We didn't want to do the stereotypical stuff. See more »

Trivia:

Demme's last big-screen release before his death was Blow (2001), a film about the career of major cocaine smuggler George Jung. Ironically, the director died of a heart attack induced by cocaine use. See more »
