Personal Quote:

The real truth is these movies are all foreign driven. They need domestic releases. If the economics are right, people feel like they can be commercial in a reasonable way domestically. But they're really foreign driven. This movie would not exist without expectation of the foreign audience being vastly greater than the domestic. See more »

Trivia:

Credits his spare writing style to an enormous influence on him from Alexander Jacobs's script for Point Blank (1967), which he read while initially trying to enter the film industry. See more »

Trademark:

Frequently has a minor character named "Luther" in his films See more »
