Personal Quote:

[on Wah-Wah (2005)] Because it took so long writing it, directing it, and getting it out in the cinema, it was very satisfying to do. Being able to address my pretty dysfunctional childhood from the safety of middle age proved to be a very rewarding experience. See more »

Trivia:

Is allergic to alcohol. He can have a drink and keep it down for about 10 minutes, but will be severely ill for 24 hours afterward. See more »
