Personal Quote:

I've always had the desire to show people things they have never seen before, which is difficult, because Hollywood prefers things which are like something else.

Trivia:

Wrote a revisionist remake of The Wild Geese (1978). The project was essentially a modern day mercenary saga with meanspirited twists; it stayed in limbo despite the support of Roger Moore and the original movie's backers (Asia Argento was also in the frame for the female lead). See more »

Trademark:

Typical elements of his movies are extreme violence, occultism, oneiricism and visionariness. See more »
